Shoaib Malik's family is waiting for details of the case registered against him on the complaint filed by Ayesha Siddiqui, who claims to be the first wife of the cricketer, at Banjara Hills Police station in Hyderabad.
"We really don't know what the cases have been made out against Shoaib but our lawyer in India is in touch with Shoaib and with us and is obtaining the copies of the FIR and other details," Shoaib's brother-in-law Imran Zafar said today.
He made it clear that Shoaib was not the type of person to threaten anyone and Ayesha's claims that he offered her millions of rupees to keep quiet were ridiculous.
Sources close to Shoaib told PTI that after Ayesha and her family went ahead with filing the police report, the Pakistani cricketer's mother and family members were worried.
"Contact has also been established with the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi through government channels to see whether this case can become a big problem for Shoaib," one source stated.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani barrister hired by Ayesha said he would file a case against Shoaib in the next few days.
"I am just waiting for some more documents and evidence to come from India after which I will file a case against Shoaib," Farooq Hasan said.
He, however, did not elaborate if he would also file a complaint against Shoaib with the police as Ayesha and her family had done in Hyderabad today.
"I had a detailed discussion with Ayesha and her father today and once they send me more documents I will move ahead," he added.
Hasan said under Pakistani law if Ayesha claimed to be the first wife of Shoaib then he could not enter into a second 'nikah' without her permission.
Sources said Hasan is planning to hold a press conference tomorrow to give out details of the cases he will file against Shoaib.
