The Kolkata Court has issued an arrest warrant against Indian cricketer Mohammad Shami for a domestic violence case that was registered against him by his wife Hasin Jahan, but the BCCI has made it clear that they will not take any action against him till they see the chargesheet. 

A BCCI official, speaking to IANS, siad that it was too early to take action and that they will decide the further course of action once the chargesheet has been received.

"Yes, we do understand that an arrest warrant has been issued. But don't really see us getting involved in this at this point in time. Once we see the charge sheet, we can decide how things stand and if the BCCI constitution calls for any action. But at this point in time, I would say it is too early to take a call on the matter," the functionary said.

On being asked whether his central contract would be witheld, as it was in 2018 after his wife accused him of fixing as well, the BCCI official added, "That was different. There were allegations that Shami had indulged in fixing games. So, the CoA felt that it was only fair that then ACU (Anti-Corruption Unit) chief Neeraj Kumar looked into the claims and submitted a report before Shami was handed his contract. The ACU chief had cleared him of any wrongdoing on the cricketing front after which he was handed his contract.

"This time round, it is more a case of domestic violence. As things stand now, his contract doesn't need to be terminated. I am sure Shami will do the needful once he is back in the country after the second Test against the West Indies ends," the functionary explained.

Team India is currently in West Indies, and Shami took the field on Monday, just hours before he was summoned by the court.
