The Andhra Pradesh High Court has ordered return of passport to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. His lawyer has said the authorities will return passport to shoaib this evening. All cases against the cricketer have been withdrawn. The Andhra Pradesh High Court Friday reserved its orders on a petition by Shoaib Malik, seeking direction to police to close the case against him and return his passport. The cricketer, who married Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza, moved the court to get back his passport, seized by police April 5 after he was questioned in connection with a cheating case filed by his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui. Shoaib's counsel told the court that the issue between him and Ayesha was resolved amicably and she withdrew her complaint and hence there was no reason to hold on to his passport. Malik moved the high court after police said it might take a week for him to get back his passport as he would have to complete some legal formalities.
