PTI chairman Imran Khan ties knot again for third time
KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has tied the knot again for third time with Bushra Maneka, ARY News reported on Sunday.
According to our correspondent, the exclusive pictures depicting PTI chairman Imran Khan with a woman sitting next to him have been procured from the party sources.
Mufti Saeed, who had previously officiated Khan’s second marriage with TV anchor Reham Khan in 2015, solemnized his third marriage in Lahore.
“Marriage is the combination of two hearts and two souls, which join each other on this special day of your wedding. Wishing you two a very happy and blessed married life!” PTI Information Secretary Fawad Chaudhry tweeted.

The cricketer-turned-politician has been married twice before.
Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire, was his first wife. The couple married back in 1995 and divorced in 2004.
Khan tied the knot for second time with TV anchor Reham Khan in January 2015 but their marriage was dissolved after 10 months.
The major opposition party has previously been shied away to comment on Khan’s third marriage.
In a statement on January 7, the party clarified that its chief had not tied the knot with a woman, whom he regarded as a spiritual leader, in secrecy, he had expressed his desire to marry her.
“To set the record straight, Mr Khan proposed marriage to Ms Bushra Maneka, but Ms Maneka asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children,” said the statement.
“It is indeed sad to see this extremely private and sensitive matter be made the subject of an erroneous story leading to all manner of public conjecture.”
The statement further said if and when the marriage proposal is accepted by Ms Maneka, Mr Khan will make it public in a proper manner.
“It is unfortunate and regrettable that Umar Cheema of the Jhang Group chose to do a conjectural story on PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s personal life, which also involved another person – a very private lady who is not in public,” the statement said.
On January 6, Muhammad Musa Maneka, son of Bushra Bibi, also rejected such reports as speculative and false.
He then said he had asked his mother to solemnize marriage with the PTI chief, but she turned down the proposal.
“It’s true that my mother is spiritual leader of Imran Khan, however as far as marriage is concerned there’s no truth in it,” he said adding that whoever had spread this news, he must be a shameless man.
