More trouble for Shami as CoA asks Anti-Corruption Unit to probe match-fixing allegations

Vinod Rai has also given a seven-day deadline to the ACU since Shami’s central contract has been withheld by the BCCI.

Mohammed Shami, who is under the scanner following charges of domestic violence were made by his wife Hasin Jahan, will also be investigated by the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit over allegations of match-fixing.

Vinod Rai, the chief of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has written to ACU head Neeraj Kumar to investigate the charges of match fixing made by his wife and submit a report within a week, reported The Times of India. The e-mail, a copy of which is with the newspaper, has also been marked to all BCCI office-bearers and CEO, Rahul Johri.

Jahan alleged that the Bengal pacer took money from a Pakistani woman called Alishba under the influence of England-based businessman Mohammed Bhai.

The Kolkata Police have already charged the India cricketer with sections of the Indian Penal Code related to domestic violence, criminal intimidation and causing hurt with poison following a complaint filed by Jahan.

Rai, in his email, clearly stated that the investigation is about ceretain telephone conversations with the said woman from Pakistan.

“This has reference to the various media reports pertaining to allegations against Shami. The CoA has listened to the audio recording of a telephonic conversation which it is claimed is between Shami and his wife. The said audio recording is available in public domain. The CoA is concerned only with such portion of the said audio recording in which the person who it is claimed is Shami is heard saying another person by the name of “Mohammed Bhai” had sent money to Shami through a Pakistani lady by the name of “Alisba,” Rai wrote.

The COA has also given a seven-day deadline to the ACU since Shami’s central contract has been withheld. The IPL governing Council is also set to hold a meeting to discuss whether Shami can take part in the league after the Delhi Daredevils requested BCCI’s instructions.

Earlier, the Kolkata Police had asked the BCCI to hand over Shami’s travel details after the last T20I match in South Africa.

Some of the most significant innovations in automotive history made their debut in this iconic automobile

The latest version features India's first BS VI norms-compliant engine and a host of 'intelligent' features.

The S-Class, also known as Sonderklasse or special class, represents Mercedes Benz’ top-of-the-line sedan line up. Over the decades, this line of luxury vehicles has brought significant automotive technologies to the mainstream, with several firsts to its credit and has often been called the best car in the world. It’s in the S-Class that the first electronic ESP and ABS anti-lock braking system made their debut in the 20th century.

Twenty first-century driver assistance technologies which predict driver-behaviour and the vehicle’s course in order to take preventive safety measures are also now a staple of the S-Class. In the latest 2018 S-Class, the S 350 d, a 360-degree network of cameras, radars and other sensors communicate with each other for an ‘intelligent’ driving experience.

The new S-Class systems are built on Mercedes Benz’s cutting-edge radar-based driving assistance features, and also make use of map and navigation data to calculate driving behaviour. In cities and on other crowded roads, the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC helps maintain the distance between car and the vehicle in front during speeds of up to 210 kmph. In the same speed range, Active Steering Assist helps the driver stay in the centre of the lane on stretches of straight road and on slight bends. Blind Spot Assist, meanwhile, makes up for human limitations by indicating vehicles present in the blind spot during a lane change. The new S-Class also communicates with other cars equipped with the Car-to-X communication system about dicey road conditions and low visibility due to fog, rain, accidents etc. en route.

The new S-Class can even automatically engage the emergency system when the driver is unable to raise an alarm. Active Emergency Stop Assist brings the car to a stop if it detects sustained periods of inactivity from the driver when Active Steering Assist is switched on. If the driver doesn’t respond to repeated visual and audible prompts, it automatically activates the emergency call system and unlocks the car to provide access to first responders.

The new Mercedes-Benz S 350 d in India features another notable innovation – the country’s first BS VI norms-compliant car engine, in accordance with government regulations to control vehicular pollution. Debuting two years before the BS VI deadline of 2020, the S 350 d engine also remains compatible with the current BS IV fuels.

The S 350 d is an intelligent car made in India, for Indian roads - in the Mercedes Benz S-Class tradition. See the video below to know what drives the S-Class series by Mercedes Benz.
