Controversial Pakistan speedster Mohd Asif is in for trouble as a local court in Lahore has asked the concerned authorities to register a case against him on the plea of his estranged girl friend Veena Malik.
Malik has pleaded to the court to start legal proceedings against Asif for giving her a 'fake' cheque, The News reports.
In her plea, Malik has claimed that she has given 10 million rupees to Asif, and the cheque that the fast bowler had given her to return the money had bounced.
Malik, a noted film and TV actress, has claimed that she had supported Asif both 'emotionally' and 'financially' during his bad days, and now she 'at least' wants her money back.
Malik had earlier sued Asif for recovery of 3.4 million rupees.
"When he (Asif) was banned from cricket and when no one was willing to support or help him I stood by his side and I gave him money which he said he would pay me back when things improved," Malik had said.
"Now that his situation is better he is trying to avoid meeting his commitment but I want my money back, it is my hard earned money," she added.
Malik also claimed that Asif had proposed her on Valentine's Day but she had refused, as she wanted to concentrate on her career.
Asif was romantically linked to Malik, and there were rumours last year that both got secretly married in London, which has been denied by both of them.
However, Asif got married to a girl from Lahore, Hina, recently.
According to sources, Asif had assured Malik of marriage once his cricket career was back on track and he was selected in the Pakistan team.
"Veena kept on giving Asif money during his turbulent period. She had to sell her house in Islamabad, a couple of residential plots and gold jewelry to help Asif come out of the mess in which he was," sources privy to the issue said.
"She was madly in love with him, but he dumped her and married someone else. Veena has documentary proof of the money she was giving to Asif for the last two years," sources added.
