LAHORE – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday rejected media reports of Imran Khan’s third marriage but said he has proposed marriage to a woman named Bushra Maneka.

The party chief has only proposed Ms Maneka but she has asked for time to make a final decision, requesting media to respect the privacy of both the families, PTI clarified this in a press statement.

“If and when the proposal is accepted by Ms Maneka for the marriage, Imran Khan will announce it publicly in the proper manner,” the tweet added.

Earlier, today, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said that the party will issue an important press statement on the reports of party chief Imran Khan’s third marriage.

A local media group,  earlier, reported that the PTI chairman welcomed 2018 by marrying Bushra Maneka—daughter-in-law of Ghulam Muhammad Maneka—on the night of January 1 in Lahore, and came straight from there the next day to appear before the anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad that granted him bail.
