PTI rubbishes report about Imran Khan’s third marriage


Islamabad, Jan. 6 (TNS): Lashing out at leading media group for spreading lies, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday rubbished a report that party Chairman Imran Khan had allegedly married for the third time.

The English daily in an article published on Saturday claimed that Khan married a woman, whom he regarded as his spiritual leader, in a secret ceremony on January 1. Mufti Saeed, who had officiated Khan’s second marriage with TV anchor Reham Khan in 2015, reportedly performed the nikkah, according to The News.

The report also mentions the location of the alleged marriage, saying it took place in “Sector Y of Defence Housing Authority, Lahore, at the residence of a close confidante of the bride who also happens to be a friend of a PTI leader”.

PTI’s chief whip Shireen Mazari termed the report “ridiculous” and “pathetic”, saying that Khan’s “detractors” were making up stories about his marriage now that they could not accuse him of corruption after the Supreme Court gave the party leader a clean chit in the disqualification case last year.
