The security provided to ace tennis star Sania Mirza has been withdrawn by Andhra Pradesh police for "failing" to pay user fee for the security she had obtained.

Hyderabad City Commissioner of Police B Prasada Rao told reporters here today that notices were issued to Sania and others asking them to make necessary payments for the security obtained from City Security Wing (CSW).

Refusing to divulge further details on the number of defaulters, he said "police have certain guidelines to recover the charges for security provided to different personalities."

"They are supposed to make advance payments. If anybody fails to make payment of the service, we issue notices to them", the commissioner said.

Sania was given a gunman each in two shifts. Her security was withdrawn after she "failed" to pay security charges, sources said.
