Ayesha files police complaint against Shoaib Malik

Hyderabad, April 4 (IANS) Ayesha Siddiqui, who claims to be the first wife of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, Sunday lodged a police complaint against him for cheating her.

In her complaint to Banjara Hills police station, Ayesha also complained that Shoaib was warning her to keep mum and was going ahead with his second marriage with Indian tennis star Sania Mirza without divorcing her.


In the complaint, filed by Ayesha's father M.A. Siddiqui on her behalf, she also accused Shoaib of harassment.


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.


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


She alleged that the Pakistani cricketer had offered her $1 million to keep mum on their first marriage. She also stated that he was threatening her for speaking to the media.


Police may record Ayesha's statement before registering a case against Shoaib, who is staying at Sania Mirza's house here.


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.


Earlier, Shoaib rejected Ayesha's demand for a divorce, saying he signed a 'nikahnama' or marriage document for marrying a girl whose photographs she had been sending.


Shoaib told reporters that he was in Hyderabad for the marriage with Sania Mirza April 15.
