Sania Mirza admirer is arrested

A young Indian man turned up at the home of tennis star Sania Mirza and threatened to kill himself if the tennis player did not marry him.

Mohammad Ashraf told Imran Mirza, Sania's father, that the tennis star could not marry anyone else as she "was born for me".

He also demanded that her engagement with family friend Sohrab Mirza, scheduled for Friday, be cancelled.

An alarmed Imran Mirza called the police who have taken him into custody
.
He has been produced in court and remanded for a fortnight.

Mirza, 22, is one of the top ranking players. She ranks 85 in the world.

'Threatening'

In his complaint to the police, Mr Mirza says Mr Ashraf claims to be in love with the tennis star ever since he saw her playing a match in Bangalore two years ago.

Mr Mirza has also complained that the youth was sending text messages and making threatening calls to his daughter for some time.

Mr Ashraf arrived at Ms Mirza's home in Hyderabad city's upmarket home in Banjara Hills area on Tuesday evening accompanied by his friend Devadeesh Mohanty.

"How can you engage Sania to another person when she was born for me?" Mr Ashraf is reported to have asked the tennis player's father.

"He was threatening to commit suicide if Sania did not marry him," Mr Mirza told the police.

The two men have been arrested and have been charged with trespass and creating a nuisance.

Mr Ashraf has been identified as a civil engineer from Bangalore.

Police say they have contacted Bangalore police to find out whether Mr Ashraf is mentally sound.

It is the second time in less than a month that Mirza has hit the headlines for the wrong reason.

Last month, the Andhra Pradesh state government found that a man had secured a white ration card showing Sania Mirza as his wife.

The ration card carried photos of the tennis star.

White ration cards are meant for the people living below the poverty line.

Re: Sania Mirza admirer is arrested

Is Sania currently engaged to someone with the same last name as hers?

"Ration Cards" are the official forms of government IDs used in India (similar to Drivers Licences, or Passports, in other countries. The govt. basically allows each family to purchase a certain amount of food and fuel (ration) below the market price depending on how many people they are supporting, thus a RC shows the names of your spouse and kids.

The RC was obviously a forgery, but if you have one with someones name and picture showing them as your wife you can probably do a lot of damage.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ration_stamp

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Below_Poverty_Line

A quick read of several articles provides this data: The white card is for BPL (Below Poverty Line). Normally new ration cards are issued to all eligible families after a Govt. notification. Ration cards are basically of two types: White Cards (D Cards); Pink Cards (ABC Cards). White cards are issued to people with an income of less than Rs. 11000 and pink cards are issued to people with an income of more than Rs. 11000. (Note: Rs. 11000 equals about USD 225.)

Rice and other essential commodities are issued. One requirement is not having gas service. The system of issuing ration cards is subject to corruption, including vote-buying, those not in need getting the cards and selling them, and other political corruptions.



Here is the news story about the bogus card with Sania's photo on it.

http://news.webindia123.com/news/Art...1/1287246.html

Andhra Pradesh Civil Supplies Department issued two white ration cards, meant for people Below Poverty Line (BPL), to cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar, which created flutter among the officils during the weeding out of bogus ration cards here today.

Out of two lakh ration cards verified, 6,000 bogus ration cards were unearthed during the inspection, according to official sources here.

It was also revealed during the operation that Civil Supply officials also had issued ration cards on immovable properties.

The officials had also issued a white ration card with tennis star Sania Mirza's photo on it in the name of Mr Lakshmi Narayana, a resident of Vepadu village. This was revealed at a high-level meeting held recently, chaired by Chief Minister Y S Rajashekara.

Re: Sania Mirza admirer is arrested

Actually I think what those two guys did could have easily been a joke, maybe a drunken binge happening. It sounds worse when written down. But I do understand why Sania's dad called police.

Re: Sania Mirza admirer is arrested

I saw her at a tournament 4-5 years ago, she has major, major bodyguards around her, more than I've seen for anyone, Williams X2, everyone. The lead guy looked like the killer from Octopussy. They didn't stop Gisela Dulko from throwing her off the practice court when her time was up, though!
