Police Register Case of Cheating against Shoaib


Hyderabad, Apr 4 (IANS) : Indian tennis star Sania Mirza's wedding plans took a dramatic turn Sunday as Hyderabad resident Ayesha Siddiqui, who claims to be the first wife of Shoaib Malik, filed a case of cheating against the Pakistani cricketer after he denied marrying her.

Ayesha also accused Malik, the former Paksitani skipper, of trying to buy her silence for $1 million, muddying the waters ahead of the April 15 marriage of Sania and Shoaib.

In her complaint at the Banjara Hills police station, Ayesha also complained that Shoaib was warning her to keep mum and was going ahead with his marriage Sania without her consent or without divorcing her.

Ayesha filed the complaint under sections 498 A (harassment), 420 (cheating) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Police said they would investigate the complaint before taking any action. "We have only received a complaint. We will go into it before taking further action," said Assistant Commissioner of Police R. Ravinder Reddy.

Legal experts said if a case is booked against Shoaib, his passport may be seized and he may be prevented from leaving India until the investigations are completed.

Ayesha told a television channel that she hated Shoaib with passion and said she was determined to see the Pakistani punished for cheating her.

She hit back hours after Shoaib issued a statement claiming that no 'nikah' took place with Ayesha and hence there was no need for him to divorce her before marrying Sania.

The Pakistani batsman accused Ayesha of emotionally forcing him into the marriage but quoted Muslim religious leaders to say that the marriage was not valid as he had signed 'nikahnama' believing that he was marrying the girl whose photographs were sent to him by Ayesha but who turned out to be someone else.

The cricketer released a statement to the press after emerging from Sania's residence, where is staying ahead of their marriage.

He also accused Ayesha of posing as Maha Apa, her elder sister, whose photographs were sent to him and fooled him for five years. Shoaib said neither he or his brother-in-law could never meet Ayesha during their visits to Hyderabad.

Shoaib claimed that Ayesha had starting making phone calls to him in 2001 when he was in Sharjah with the Pakistani team.

"Naturally I wanted to meet her. Every time I brought up the topic of meeting, she would send me a bunch of photographs," the statement said.

The cricketer claimed that he was made to believe that he was speaking to the girl in the photograph. "The truth is that I have, to this day, not met the girl in the photograph," he said.

Shoaib said in 2002, Ayesha forced him into marriage over telephone saying people in Hyderabad had started talking about their relationship and this had put her parents in an embarrassing position.

"We accidentally ran into the truth about who Ayesha was," he said.

"It happened in August 2005. My brother-in-law got a photograph of a teacher in Saudi Arabia who was telling people around her that Shoaib was married to her. I was aghast when he showed me the photograph of the teacher. The woman in the photograph was the woman I called Maha Apa."

A nervous-looking Shoaib told reporters that the marriage with Sania would take place in Hyderabad on April 15. "I have come here for my wedding with Sania Mirza and we are happy," he said. Shoaib said Sania knew the truth and she had been supportive of him.

To a query about Sania's tennis career, he said she would play as long as she wished to play. "She has been representing India and will continue to represent India," he said to another query.

    There are good and bad people in every country. I can give you millions of examples of girls being cheated in India and of men having affairs after marriage and the wife has no clue. We have rape and molestation happening everyday in India, does that mean all Indians are rapist??? Love has no boundaries and here in UAE we have many Indians who are happily married to Pakistanis. Its her personal choice to marry whoever she wants. Does she interfere in your personal lives and see how many affairs you are having or what sins you have committed. Please do not live your life just looking at celebrities. There are many girls like Ayesha who fool people online and on the net and visa versa. If what Shoaib said is true about meeting Ayeshas family but not meeting Ayesha because everytime he wanted to meet her she disappeared because of her weight issue and also because she sent him the wrong picture of another beautiful girl then Ayesha and her family should be charged for cheating and forgery and this marriage will be regarded as null and void. I wish Sania and Shoaib all the best.

    Mr Rajesh Rao/Managlore,

    You have a miscoception about Islam as regards marraige. Marriage is not a contract between a man and woman as you perceived. Like marriage in any other community, its an obligation and sacrement. Man is responsible for the keeping, feeding and maintenance of spouse and children. If both partners find that they are not compatible and want to dissolve their marriage, they can do it within the sharia laws, with the blessings of parents and muslim society, without the need of going through lengthy legal battle. In such case, sharia laws reserves the right of seeking compensation from husband by divorced wife. A divorced husband has no right to ask from his wife, the money, gifts or any kind he has given to his wife and she becomes the owner of such gifts. But in legal system, one has to wait for years to decide on the matter and by the time the decission comes the couple become old and stand a less chance of re marriage.

    yes, Man can marry not only 4 times but many a times, but he cant have more than 4 living wives at one time. Thats sharia law and you cant question it. But practically very few muslim male marry more than one. Its better to marry more than one and have legality, than marry one and keep many as practiced by your community.
    As regards Sania and Shoeb, I agree with you.

    I think it is extremely difficult for Shoiab Malik to escape from Ayesha because she told police that she had a miscarriage because of her relationship with Shoiab and she would produce it at the right time. This is the LATEST development. Surprisingly, according to GEO TV survey,65% Pakistanis are backing Ayesha ! That is also a good development from our neighbour.

    Under islam marriage is a contract between a man and women to live together as long as it pleases the MALE. So this is once sided contract void "ab-initio" with an inherent right given to male to repudiate it any time like commercial contracts. Punishment for non performance or repudiation is same in both the cases ie. MONETARY penalty,one in the form of fine, other in the form maintainence by someone else?

    Men can marry 4 wives and where as women has to suffer at the hands of dominant male, with in 4 walls . I donot know why peopl are not protesting against Sania's marrigae to a impulsive match fixer who was charged for drug related offences and cheating on may girls in pak as well?

    We can understand - a goose as golden as Sania is too much to resist (in monetary as well as beauty matters) for Shoaib Malik. But what is wrong with Sania or her family ? Is there something that she is afraid of (him to be blackmailing her) if she withdraws from marrying him ?
