KARACHI: Hours after British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail reported that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairperson has gotten married, Imran Khan has neither confirmed nor denied the report, opting instead to simply say via Twitter that the report was “greatly exaggerated”.
The report, published last night, alleged that Imran had secretly married Reham Khan, a journalist who formerly presented the weather on the BBC, on December 27, against the wishes of his party and family.
Anchor Shahid Masood, known to be close to Imran, was also ambiguous about the development. Instead, he urged Imran on television to come clean.
While Imran has at least addressed the allegation, Reham’s Twitter account has been silent.
Many on Twitter have already taken Imran to task on his statement, asking how exactly a report of someone being married can be ‘exaggerated’.
