India cricketer Mohammed Shami gets a big relief as the BCCI has decided to offer him Grade ‘B’ annual retainer ship contract after clearing him from the corruption charges.
“The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had requested Mr Neeraj Kumar, former Police Commissioner of Delhi and Head of BCCI Anti-Corruption Unit, to investigate the allegations against Mohd. Shami insofar as they pertain to the provisions of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code,” the BCCI release said.
“Mr Neeraj Kumar has submitted his confidential report to the CoA. Based on the conclusions in the said report, the CoA is of the view that no further actions/ proceedings under the BCCI anti-corruption code are warranted in the matter,” it added.
Shami has been kept in Grade B, which means that he will be earning Rs 3 Cr per annum.
On March 8, Hasin had alleged that Shami could be involved in match-fixing after making allegations that he had accepted money from a Pakistani woman Alisbah in Dubai on the insistence of English based Mohammed Bhai.
On match-fixing charges he had said, “I will prefer to die than involved in such anti-national act.”
