Shoaib divorces Ayesha, claims Siddiqui family

NEW DELHI: Shoaib-Ayesha controversy took the ugliest turn ever, when a close friend of Siddiqui family claimed that Pakistani cricketer and former captain Shoaib Malik sent divorce to his alleged first wife Ayesha Siddiqui, Geo News reported Wednesday.

Meantime, Ayesha Siddiqui’s counsel in Pakistan Barrister Farooq Hasan also confirmed the divorce from Shoaib.

According to an Indian news channel, Shoaib’s counsel went to Siddiqui’s home and handed them the document of divorce.

Ramesh Gupta, the lawyer for Malik, said Malik would marry Sania after divorcing the Hyderabad girl.

Earlier Gupta said an amicable agreement is being worked out between the Siddiqui and Mirza families. Ayesha’s father will hold a press conference at 3 PM today to clear the air.

The developments mean that Shoaib will finally have to accept his lie and come out clean about Ayesha being his legal wife. A number of influential Hyderabadi families have been reported to have mediated the truce.
