Hyderabad, Apr 4(ANI): Mohammed Siddiqui, father of Ayesha, the Hyderabad girl claiming to be Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik's wife, filed a complaint against the cricketer at Banjara Hills Police Station for forgery on Sunday.

"We received the complaint and we have not booked any case so far. We are verifying the facts," said Inspector Iqbal Siddiqui.
The Siddiquis claim that Malik married their daughter Ayesha in 2002, but has not divorced her till date.
