Cricketer Shoaib Malik and tennis star Sania Mirza’s marriage saga got murkier on Monday as Hyderabad resident Ayesha Siddique’s family claimed she was not only married to the former Pakistan team skipper, but also got pregnant and suffered a miscarriage.
While Shoaib has denied marriage with Ayesha, the latter’s family claimed that they lived as man and wife.
"She was pregnant and had a miscarriage. Shoaib knew about it but did not bother," Shams Babar, a family friend of Ayesha, told reporters outside her house in Banjara Hills.
He along with Ayesha’s lawyer also alleged that the Pakistani cricketer physically and mentally abused her. They declined to answer queries saying this would be proved in the court of law.
A day after Shoaib, in his statement, denied meeting Ayesha, Babar said the two had met 14 times. "We have solid proof to nail Shoaib," Babar said.
"I am warning Shoaib not to make it worse by prolonging it. He should admit it and make a public apology like a good man and give divorce to Ayesha," he said.(IANS)
