LONDON (Web Desk) – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s wife, Reham Khan’s personal website states that she won her post as a reporter on the BBC regional show South Today after starting a postgraduate course ‘in Broadcast Journalism at North Lindsay College’, in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.

However, according to officials at North Lindsey, it has never offered such a course, reported The Daily Mail.

Furthermore, they can find no record of anyone bearing Khan’s name or age ever having enrolled.

‘We do not have anyone by those names or date of birth having attended this college,’ says a spokesman. ‘We have never done a degree in broadcast journalism.’

This was revealed by the same journalist, Sebastian Shakespeare, who disclosed the PTI Chairman’s marriage to Reham.

Shakespeare wrote, “When I disclosed in January that cricket legend Imran Khan had secretly married former BBC presenter Reham Khan, his ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith seemed less than thrilled and publicly thanked Pakistanis who contacted her to say she remained their favourite First Lady.”

This raises new questions about the past of Imran Khan’s wife and TV journalist Reham, 42, who has her own show in a private TV channel in Pakistan.

Without commenting on the truth of the allegations, Reham showed her displeasure on Twitter:

She also criticized the Daily Mail, UK’s best known tabloid, without being specific about what exactly she dislikes about their latest report on her.

This isn’t the first time Reham Khan’s past has been questioned. Politicians inside and outside PTI have cast doubts about Reham Khan’s past and her credentials over the past year, making her one of the most controversial personalities within the PTI.

UPDATE: Reham Khan hits back at Pakistan media and Daily Mail; but does not deny fake degree allegations
