Shoaib moves Andhra HC to get back passport

April 16, 2010 15:01 IST

Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik on Friday moved the Andhra Pradesh High Court for a direction to Central Crime Station police in Hyderabad to release his passport.

The Banjara Hills police had seized Shoaib's passport during the investigation into a complaint lodged by his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui.

Malik, who recently married tennis star Sania Mirza, approached the court and said that the issue between him and Ayesha has been resolved amicably and police has no reason to detain his passport.

Justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy heard the arguments of the counsel for Shoaib Malik and adjourned the matter to Monday for his judgement.
