"A chargesheet has been filed against cricketer Mohammed Shami under section 498A (domestic violence) and 354A (Sexual harassment). The case will begin in a month," a senior officer of the Kolkata Police said.
However, Shami's lawyer said the police had dropped three prime charges levelled by Jahan including of rape, attempt to murder and physical assault, from the chargesheet.
News of the cricketer's marital discord became public last year when his wife Jahan, a former model, took to Facebook to accuse him of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs with a number of women.
Shami last played in the just-concluded One Day International series against Australia, where he picked five wickets in four matches.
