Two engineering students smitten by Indian tennis star Sania Mirza have been arrested for allegedly stalking her.
Police have said that one man sought to marry her one day before she was due to be engaged. The other man threatened suicide if the the engagement was to commence.
Ajay Singh Yadav was apprehended as he tried to enter Mirza’s house, apparently trying to express his love, police said. Singh reached the Indian city Hyderabad, rushing to meet Mirza and demanding to see her, police added. He was taken into police custody when he failed to depart.
His arrest came a day after another student tried to gain access to Mirza’s house. The student threatened to kill himself if the engagement wasn’t called off.
The 22 year-old Mirza became the first Indian woman to crack into the top 40 a few years back and is currently at No.86.
