Two witnesses of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi’s nikkah, Mufti Saeed and Aun Chaudhry recorded their statements before the District and Sessions Courts of Islamabad.
The court initiated the recording of Aun Chaudhry’s statement. Aun Chaudhry, who served as the political and personal secretary to Chairman PTI, provided detailed insights into the intricate relationships and events leading up to the purported marriage.
Chaudhry revealed that he played a significant role in overseeing both personal and political matters for the PTI chairman. He narrated the circumstances surrounding the divorce of Reham Khan in November 2015, stating that the PTI chairman, troubled in his marital relationship, sought solace and spiritual comfort in meetings with Bushra Bibi.
Aun Chaudhry disclosed the sequence of events leading to the marriage on January 1, 2018, at Defense Lahore. He conveyed Imran Khan’s assurance that Bushra Bibi was divorced before the marriage.
Chaudhry elaborated on the subsequent marriage ceremony at the Bani Gala, asserting that the PTI chairman believed it would lead to him becoming the Prime Minister.
The court inquired about the essentials of the marriage ceremony, and Chaudhry confirmed that Mufti Saeed had questioned both parties about it.
He said that there were media reports about Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi getting married in Eid, revealing that the PTI chairman instructed to remain silent on such matters.
Furthermore, Aun Chaudhry shared details about the second marriage ceremony conducted orally at the Bani Gala, along with the presence of Zulfi Bukhari.
He emphasized that the PTI chairman’s marriage with Bushra Bibi was based on the belief that it would lead to her becoming the Prime Minister.
The court reserved the statement of the third witness, Muhammad Latif, for the next hearing, leading to the adjournment of the case until December 2.
