Sania-Shoaib marriage today evening, Reception on 15

Hyderabad, April 9 (IANS) Indian tennis star Sania Mirza will tie the knot with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik here Friday.

Qazi Azmatullah Jafari, one of the qazis of the area in which Sania's house is located, told reporters that the nikah would be performed after the 'maghrib' prayers after sunset.

Sania's parents, Shoaib's mother and close relatives of the duo would attend the simple nikah at Sania's house in Jubilee Hills.

The ceremony has been kept a closely guarded secret in view of the row over Shoaib's first marriage and divorce with a resident of this city.

Since Shoaib has given divorce to his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui, the nikahnama to be signed Friday will clearly mention that it is second marriage of the Pakistani star.

Shoaib had Wednesday divorced Ayesha following mediation by Sania's family members and community elders after Ayesha filed a police complaint against him.

There were also speculations that Shoaib's marriage with Sania could be postponed as he has not yet got back his passport which was seized by police after they questioned him Monday.

Though Ayesha has informed the police that she is withdrawing her complaint, police told Shoaib that he would get back his passport after completing the formalities in court.

Qazis in Hyderabad do not perform marriages of foreigners without passport and no objection certificates from their respective governments.

Sania's family will be hosting the wedding reception at a star hotel here April 15.
