Norway: Pakistani cricketer and opener batsman Imam-ul-Haq's marriage festivities have commenced with a mehndi ceremony being held in Norway, as revealed on Tuesday (November 21). The 27-year-old Pakistani Cricketer is soon going to marry his fiance Anmol Mehmood this upcoming weekend amid controversy after his private chats with a female were leaked on social media.
Imam-ul-Haq involved in the same controversy earlier
The cricketer was involved in the same controversy earlier in 2019, as a woman accused the Pakistani left-handed opener batsman of being involved with other women simultaneously. The WhatsApp chats between Imam and the woman also surfaced during that time.
