PAKISTAN: Cricketer Shoaib Malik and Ayesha Siddiqui's divorce updates, 4/10/10

The Times of India is reporting that cricketer Shoaib Malik is set to marry girlfriend and tennis ace tennis ace Sania Mirza on April 15, just as soon as his messy divorce from wife Ayesha Siddiqui is finalized. But when will that be? It seems there is some allegations of fraud on the part of Mr. Malik and it involves his father’s real name and what he wrote on his marriage certificatewedding reception and his divorce papers. The discrepancy could literally mean that he gets to wiggle out of having been legally married to Ayesha. Why would he want that? Except of course alimony and maintenance? It is puzzling why he would go to all this trouble. Ayesha and her family, according to Times of India brought his attempted fraud to the attention of the police and his passport has been confiscated as a result.
But not to worry, as we write, Sania’s relatives and Shoaib’s relatives are rumored to be rehearing for the “sangeet” ceremony. So the divorce for Ayesha is final and the wedding is expected to go forward on tax day (in U.S.), April 15th. Lahore police have promised full security for the festivities.
