Pak court summons Malik
A Pakistani court yesterday summoned cricketer Shoaib Malik to appear before it on May 3 in connection with a petition that alleged he had "sold" invitation cards for a reception to celebrate his wedding to Indian tennis star Sania Mirza. Additional Sessions Judge Malik Rafiq of the court in Lahore admitted the petition filed by a man named Safdar Ali, who alleged the cricketer was selling invitation cards for his 'walima' on April 27 for 15,000 rupees (about 200 dollars) each.
The judge listed the matter for hearing on May 3 and directed Shoaib to appear before him on that date.
Ali, who described himself as a fan of Shoaib, said he had taken leave from work on April 27 to witness the walima.
"But then I found out that Shoaib is selling invitation cards for the event for 15,000 rupees."
