A day after the Andhra Pradesh High Court directed the concerned agencies to return Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik’s passport, the all rounder finally received his travel document back on Tuesday (April 20.)
According to Malik’s lawyer Muhammed Javed, his client has received his passport back, and would return to Pakistan soon with his newly married wife Sania Mirza.
On Monday, the Andhra Pradesh High Court dismissed all cases against Shoaib, and ordered the police to return his passport.
The court also said that Shoaib and Sania are free to visit Pakistan whenever they want.
Earlier on April 5, Shoaib had handed over his passport and mobile phone to the Hyderabad Police, after an investigation team questioned him on a complaint filed by his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui’s father Mohammed Siddiqui.
Acting on Siddiqui’s complaint, police had asked Shoaib not to leave the city without their permission, and also alerted immigration officials.
The decision to dismiss all cases comes after Shoaib divorced Ayesha on April 7.
After the divorce, Shoaib and Sania finally exchanged the marital vows on April 12. (ANI)
