Cops Quiz Shoaib for Two Hours at Sania's House, Seize Passport


HYDERABAD, Apr 5 (PTI): Police on Monday seized the passport of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik as they questioned him in the wake of a complaint lodged against him by the father of a local girl Ayesha Siddiqui.

But 28-year-old Shoaib told police, at the Jubilee Hills residence of 23-year-old tennis star Sania Mirza, that he had been tricked into marriage with Ayesha.

"The city police have questioned Shoaib Malik for one-and-a-half hours and they have also seized his passport. Immigration authorities have been informed about the case filed against Malik and his passport seizure," Additional Commissioner of Police (Coordination) Dwarka Tirumala Rao said.

Rao said, "As part of the investigation, a police team visited Sania's residence today. We are probing the matter."

"We are trying to collect evidence. Shoaib is cooperating and Sania is supporting him. They say they know the truth behind the whole issue," a police official said after the team talked to the cricketer.

During questioning, Shoaib told the police that he had been "cheated" by the Siddiqui family and tricked into marriage, he said.

On Sunday, the Pakistani cricketer had claimed that he was emotionally forced into the 'nikahnama' with the Hyderabad girl but said the marriage was invalid as her family had cheated him and ruled out divorce.

He said to this day he has not met the girl whose photographs were sent to him by the Siddiqui family purported to be that of Ayesha.

The charges against Shoaib are that of harassment of Ayesha, cheating to marry another girl and criminal intimidation including threats to her to keep quiet, according to Hyderabad Police commissioner AK Khan.

Ayesha's father in his complaint, which was lodged hours after Shoaib on Sunday confirmed his marriage with Sania, had accused the Pakistani cricketer of cheating his daughter.

The Banjara Hills police said that a case under Sections 420 (cheating), 498-A (dowry harassment) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC has been registered against Shoaib and they will take up the investigation after verifying facts of the complaint.

Khan said an FIR has been made out and it would be followed by collection of evidence and taking legal advice since Shoaib is a Pakistani national.

"The Banjara Hills police have received a complaint by Ayesha Siddiqui against Shoaib Malik. We have registered a case against Shoaib. Now we will take legal opinion quickly before taking further action," Rao had said.

He said there were some legal complications involved in the case and they "will have to examine whether a foreigner committing an offence on a foreign soil comes under the purview of IPC or not".

"The legal opinion will be taken quickly and we will proceed further as the marriage is on April 15," he added.

    It is better for Sania to call off this wedding till Shoaib comes out clean from all the allegations charged against him by Ayesha.   Untill then let us boycott Sania, her matches and not buy products she is endorsing at present.

    Common Sania... how much more low would you tolerate this man stooping ? The man has put up tent in your house 10 days before the wedding ? Non bail-able warrant is issued against his name, his Passport confiscated, how many more proofs do you need before deciding to kick him out ?

    For this trouble Sania, her father and mother are responsible. The Father of Sania says Sania will be the second wife of Shohaib. I do ask the commentators do Sania is first hand? She has enjoyed with the first engaged which was broken. Only thing is she has not married legally. The following was my comment on dated Thursday April 01, 2010 for the article in daijiworld Sania Should Follow Tradition, Play for Pak after Marriage: PTF Chief: I quote: Now this proverb will apply. In Hindi Aaa bail muze maar. In Konkani Vaaten vethalya vaaga maka yevn kaaga.

    It seems that Sohaib, Sania and Ayesha all 3 are part of this game for media coverage. For this publicity and media coverage, how much money they are earning. What is the purpose of Sohaib visiting India under the present animosity atmosphere of both countries.

    It is message to people, who are marrying through internet and telephone. There are chances of cheating and then file dowry case. Government and religious leaders should take action to ban “marriages through internet or telephone”, to avoid these kinds of trouble.
