Pakistan foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit said the Indian government has been requested to provide details and reasons for the police case against cricketer Shoaib Malik in Hyderabad Deccan.

Basit told Geo Super today that the government had sent a letter to the Indian government asking them to provide details of the case.

"Our high commissioner in India, Shahid Malik is also in touch with Shoaib Malik and has spoken to him," Basit said.

He hinted that in the letter to the Indian government, Pakistan had asked for the reasons that the Hyderabad police
seized the passport and mobile of Shoaib Malik after Ayesha Siddiqui and her family filed a FIR against him for cheating, committing fraud and making threatening calls to her.

Ayesha claims to be the first wife of Malik who is due to get married to Indian tennis star Sania Mirza on April 15 in
Hyderabad.

Basit said that the government was following the events in India and if Malik requested for legal assistance he would
be provided.

"Our high commissioner spoke to him in detail and is keeping abreast of all that is happening in this case," Basit
said.
