“Shoaib has admitted of his marriage to Ayesha. He has agreed to sign the divorce papers, but whether it has been signed so far has not been confirmed yet. This is was a safer bet for him," Times Now quoted Siddiquis" lawyer Barrister Farooq Hasan as saying.
Speaking to Times Now, Dr Shams Babar, a close family friend of the Siddiquis said, “A compromise has taken place today morning. The divorce papers has been signed by Shoaib. The charges against him will be dropped."
It may be recalled that the Siddiquis had earlier filed an FIR against Shoaib Malik after he refused to issue the divorce paper to Ayesha, who alleged she married him in 2002. The controversy broke out after Malik declared that he would marry Sania Mirza on April 15.
