ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and his wife Bushra Bibi on Wednesday challenged the decision of a district and sessions court marriage case in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Yesterday, a district and sessions court in Islamabad declared the alleged illegal marriage case of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and his wife Bushra Bibi, admissible

The PTI chairman, filing his plea through his defense lawyer Sher Afzal Marwat,  stated that allegations raised in a private complaint do not fall under Section 496.

Complainant, Muhammad Hanif raised ‘baseless’ allegations over me and my wife, the plea stated and added the complaint allegations are only meant to defame us.

Terming the plea as inadmissible for the hearing, the PTI chairman has pleaded with the IHC to strike down the decision of the civil judge.

The alleged un-Islamic Nikkah of the former prime minister and Bushra Bibi was brought to light by Mufti Saeed, the cleric who solemnized the couple’s Nikkah, who claimed that the initial ceremony was not conducted in accordance with Islamic Sharia law, as it occurred during the iddat period of Bushra Bibi.

In 2018, the PTI chief tied the knot with Bushra Bibi after divorce from her former husband Khawar Farid Maneka.
