The reception was hosted by Malik and turned out to be a headache for his family since many uninvited guests showed up to take part in the celebrations at the Sialkot hockey ground. Added to this heavy security arrangements by the Punjab Police and the insistence of the local administration on enforcing the energy conversation measures also led to the problems during the function.
A private channel ‘Duniya’ reported that tennis star Sania’s family, which had arrived from India for the celebrations, left for Lahore early as they were upset at the mismanagement at the function. Eyewitnesses at the function said Shoaib and Sania, who were sitting on the stage and greeting the guests, also left before the function ended. “There is no reason known why they left but apparently there were problems when the younger brother-in-law of Malik, Adnan was stopped at the main entrance by security guards from entering the function,” one eye witness said. Eyewitnesses said hundreds of people showed up for the reception many of whom were not invited and without invitation cards. “This led to a huge rush at the main entrance and it made life difficult for the security personnel as well to control the situation,” he said. He said there were reports that invitation cards for the wedding reception had been sold by some people for between Rs 5000 to Rs 10,000. To make matters worse, the power corporation officials insisted that no extra lighting would be allowed at the reception.
