Pak PM Imran Khan’s stepson held for possession of liquor

Islamabad: Pakistan police have lodged an FIR against the younger son of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s third wife Bushra Bibi from her previous marriage, his cousin, and a friend on charges of possession of liquor.

According to the FIR, the Ghalib Market police had recovered liquor from their car early on Monday and registered a case against Bushra Bibi‘s son Muhammad Musa Maneka, his cousin Mohammad Ahmad Maneka (son of politician Ahmed Raza Maneka), and their friend Ahmad Shaharyar, reports Pakistani newspaper Dawn News.

The FIR was lodged under subsections 3, 4, and 11 of The Prohibition (Enforcement of Hadd Order, 1979) against the three suspects, who were arrested while crossing a police picket on Zahoor Elahi Road, the newspaper reported.

Of the three, Shaharyar was found drunk after a test was conducted in hospital Musa and Ahmed were later released on a personal guarantee of a member of the Maneka family, as they had not consumed the contraband at that time, Dawn News reported. Shaharyar, too, later secured bail.

Earlier this month, a close friend of Bushra Bibi named Farah Khan had dismissed rumours about alleged differences between the Prime Minister and his wife, saying that the couple are living together. Posting on Twitter, Farah Khan had announced that Bushra and Imran were living at the PM’s Bani Gala residence in Islamabad. “Fake propaganda was being spread through Whatsapp messages about the first couple,” she had said.

Khan’s spokesman Shahbaz Gill had also rejected rumours on social media about differences between the Prime Minister and his wife. “Strict legal action will be taken against those who are still spreading false news about the First Lady. Both the First Lady and the Prime Minister are present in Islamabad,” he had tweeted.

Gill had also said “we are already in court against (journalist) Najam Sethi for giving false and fabricated news about Prime Minister and First Lady Bushra Imran Khan”. Appearing in a TV talk show in 2019, Sethi had claimed that the first couple were going through a rough patch and that Bushra Bibi had shifted to Lahore.

Khan rejected the report, saying his marriage to Bushra, who rarely appears in public with her face uncovered, was a “blessing of God” and would last forever. The cricketer-turned-politician married Bushra Bibi in 2018, following which he became Prime Minister. The mother of five was his spiritual guide or pirni (a title used in Islam for a female spiritual guru), and was divorced by her first husband. Khan’s two earlier marriages – to British heiress Jemima Goldsmith and British-Pakistani journalist Reham Khan – also ended in divorce.
