Imran Khan failed to comply with Article 62, 63 by concealing marriage, alleges Reham Khan
LONDON - Reham Khan, the former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman, Imran Khan, alleged on Monday that the PTI chief failed to fulfill the requirements of Article 62 and 63 of the constitution by concealing his second marriage for two months.

In a brief interaction with Dunya News in London, Reham categorically denied receiving funds from former Chief Minister Punjab, Shehbaz Sharif; she also negated meeting Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif.

The TV anchor also requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar to take notice of the issue, warning that she would take the accusers to the court.

"I cannot understand why Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is apprehensive about my book," she said in the interview.

She also chided Imran Khan over the recent delay in the nominations of candidates for caretaker chief minister for Punjab, wondering whether those who failed in the process could steer the country.

Responding to PTI spokesman Chaudhry's claims on Twitter that "the whole book [written by Reham] is an exercise to demolish only real opposition," she responded: "How will my book affect outcome of elections."

The former journalist had remained at the centre of controversy after split from Imran Khan in 2015, however, the controversy heated up when famous actor Hamza Ali Abbasi censured her on Saturday after claiming that he had read the manuscript of Reham’s book in which Imran Khan was portrayed in a bad light.

Reham also shared a few 'threatening' emails alleging that they belong to Hamza Ali Abbasi, though the actor denied ownership of the email address.

In the latest interview, the former journalist said that her book revolves around the character related to her life.

She also alleged that her email address was hacked and added that Hamza Ali Abbasi would go to jail for his childish escapade.

Reham also showed documents regarding the alleged communication between her and former Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and expressed that the documents were forged.

Imran Khan's former wife is in London from over a few days where she is planning to launch her autobiography, for which an exact date has not been announced yet.

Imran Khan has not opened up about the recent Twitter debate, however, he had earlier expressed that the book would actually give a fillip to his election campaign, contrary to the perception.
