December 06, 2023

ISLAMABAD: A domestic servant of Khawar Manika, in his testimony during the illegal marriage case against Imran Khan, on Tuesday told the judge that Imran Khan used to visit Bushra at her house before their marriage.

Senior Civil Judge, Qudratullah, presided over the proceedings of the case on Tuesday. During the hearing, Bushra’s ex-husband Khawar Manika’s domestic servant Muhammad Latif recorded his statement after which the statements of all the four prosecution witnesses of the case were recorded.

Latif recorded his statement in the presence of the petitioner’s lawyer Rizwan Abbasi. He said the former PTI chairman used to visit Bushra Bibi at her house before their marriage. Imran and Bushra Bibi would go into a room and indulge in ‘indecent activities’. The servant said once when he entered Bushra’s room, Imran started to abuse him and told him to get out. He said he was doing that on Khawar Manika’s instructions to keep an eye on them.

After recording his statement, the court adjourned the hearing of the case till December 8 and sought arguments on whether the case was admissible or not.

It should be noted that earlier Bushra’s ex-husband Khawar Manika, Mufti Saeed and Imran Khan’s former aide Aun Chaudhry have already recorded their statements as witnesses. On Friday, the petitioner’s lawyer, Rizwan Abbasi, will present his arguments on maintainability of the case.

Earlier on Monday, Imran Khan told media persons during the cipher case trial in Adiala Jail that he had never seen Bushra before their marriage. Reacting to it, Aun Chaudhry dubbed Imran’s statement as the biggest lie of the century.
