Imran says Shoaib to make maiden marriage with Sania

NEW DELHI: Shoaib Malik’s brother-in-law Imran Zafar Malik reiterated Tuesday that no nikah had ever happened between Pakistani cricketer and Indian girl Ayesha Siddiqi.

He was speaking to a battery of media persons along with Shoaib’s counsel Ramesh Gupta after arriving in New Delhi.

The legal procedures of the alleged ‘nikah’ were not carried out, he said, adding that how could it be done without the identification of the girl.

Malik said nobody else had the ‘nikahnama’ except Siddiqi family while it was also not registered in Pakistan.

To a question, he said that he had twice visited Indian city of Hyderabad Deccan, where Ayesha had introduced herself as Maha.

She told me that Ayesha had to leave for Saudi Arabia on a sudden visit. Had I met the girl at that time, this situation could have been prevented, he remarked.

Answering a question, he said: “We have confidence in Indian law.”

Speaking on this occasion, Shoaib counsel Ramesh Gupta ruled out the possibility of arrest of Pakistani cricketer.
