ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday issued an official statement, rejecting the media reports that its chief Imran Khan has married secretly for the third time.
According to a statement issued by PTI it was stated that, “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.”
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 indeed sad to see this extremely private and sensitive matter be made the subject of erroneous story leading to all manner of public conjecture,” the notification said.

The News reported on Saturday that Imran has secretly married on January 1 — for the third time — a woman he used to visit for spiritual guidance.
A day earlier, Muhammad Musa Maneka, son of Bushra Bibi, also rejected such reports as speculative and false.
Bushra Maneka, who is in her 40s, is from the Wattoo clan. She was married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad.
This is not the first time Khan has been linked to someone from the Maneka family. In July 2016, reports suggested that the PTI chief had married a woman belonging to the Maneka family in London, with sources claiming his wife’s name is Maryam.
