A Pakistani court today dismissed a petition seeking the registration of a case against cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza for the alleged violation of several rules during a reception in Sialkot to celebrate their wedding.
A man named Sheikh Hasan Sheraz had alleged in a petition filed in the Lahore High Court that a ban on serving more than one dish at a wedding function had been violated during the reception held on April 25 in the cricketer’s hometown of Sialkot.
He also alleged the organisers of the event violated regulations restricting the use of electricity at such functions.
Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khwaja Muhammad Sharif dismissed the petition after Sheraz was unable to produce evidence to back up his allegations.
Sheraz had also requested the court to order the couple and the administration of a five-star hotel in Lahore to conduct Shoaib's 'walima' today in accordance with the law.
He had also sought legal proceedings against federal Population Welfare Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan for her move to get Sania declared an ambassador of Pakistan's population control programmes even though she is an Indian citizen.
