Police allow Mohammed Shami to join Delhi Daredevils after 3-hour interrogation
Kolkata: India pacer Mohammed Shami on Wednesday got a temporary relief from Kolkata Police to join his Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils (DD) following a three-hour interrogation.
Facing summons from Kolkata Police after his wife had filed multiple cases including those of infidelity and domestic violence, Shami was held back here after Delhi’s IPL fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens on April 16.
“We have got no objection in Shami joining his IPL side. But if need be, we will be call him again,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Praveen Tripathi told reporters after Shami’s grilling that lasted a little over three hours. “We can call him anytime but at this point of time, we don’t find it is necessary. He’s fully cooperating in this case,” Tripathi added.
It is learnt that Shami will leave on Wednesday night to join his franchise DD in Bengaluru where they play a match against the Virat Kohli-led side on April 21.
Asked whether they are satisfied with the findings, the police officer said, “Satisfaction is not the answer. We examined him professionally, got our answers and after that the investigation will take its course.”
Shami did not talk to the media and was seen whisked away by a police escort. Shami’s elder brother Hasib Ahmed, who was also booked in the case, was also summoned as he checked in about two hours in advance, but both left together. “The two were interrogated separately as well as together,” Tripathi said.
