Indian tennis star Sania Mirza, ranked 85th in the world, is to get engaged to family friend Sohrab Mirza on Friday, and two men could not handle that.
On Wednesday, Mohammad Ashraf was arrested after threatening to kill himself if Mirza did not marry him. On Thursday, Ajay Singh Yadav told the police that he had been in love with Mirza for five years and also wanted to marry her.
Mohammed Ashraf, an engineering student, tried to enter Mirza’s house in Hyderabad and threatened to commit suicide if her engagement was not cancelled. Ashraf fell in love with Mirza two years ago, watching her play in Bangalore.
Another student, Ajay Singh Yadav arrived in Hyderabad in the morning and rushed towards Mirza’s house, saying he wanted to meet her. When he did not go away despite warnings, the police took him in to custody.
BTW: I thought Mirza has already been engaged. Apparently she was just planning to get engaged. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
