KARACHI: Rumours finally died down about the third wedding of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday as the party confirmed that the PTI chief has married Bushra Manika.
PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry, while speaking to Samaa, confirmed that Khan’s nikah was solemnised today by Mufti Saeed, a member of PTI core committee.
Mufti Saeed was also the nikah khawan when Imran publicly entered into marriage with Reham Khan on January 8, 2015 amid reports of secret nikah in November 2014.
Fawad Chaudhry further said that the PTI chief tied the knot in an intimate and simple ceremony, adding that details about Valima would be announced later.
The pictures of nikah were released through PTI’s officla Twitter account.
Last month, Khan, 66, denied the media reports that he had already contracted marriage with Maneka, a day after a Pakistani daily reported that he married her on January 1 in Lahore.
Khan said he had proposed marriage to Manika but denied reports that he had secretly wed her, adding that Maneka has “asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children”.
Maneka, who is in her 40s and believed to be a spiritual figure, was married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad.
