New Delhi/Bhubaneswar: Seamer Mohammed Shami has been in hot water since his wife Hasin Jahan accused him of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs. However, the reason behind their spat has taken a new turn.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) 26-member annual contracts system, which saw the addition of a new category, also hold contract with the Bengal pacer for the time being due to the controversy.

Meanwhile, according to sources and people close to Shami's family, the bone of contention between the couple is not the alleged infidelity of the cricketer rather a farmhouse worth around Rs 12 crore.

A report of ABP news, citing sources, claimed that Shami had purchased around 60 acres of land in Ali Nagar village of Amroha district in Uttar Pradesh and wanted to open a sports academy there.

The board on the land reads, Hasin farmhouse, Shami properties”.

Hasin on the other hand wanted Shami not to invest anything towards the sports academy and instead buy properties in West Bengal.

The family source believed the disagreement over the purchase of property in Amroha led to the marital strife between Shami and Hasin, ABP news reported.

Meanwhile, police are investigating into the case and the truth is expected to be revealed soon.
