Islamabad: Cricketer-turned politician and Chairman of opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has married for the third time in a simple ceremony in London, according to media reports.

Geo TV reported that Imran decided to get marry at the suggestion of female spiritualist called ‘Pinki’ of influential Maneka family from Punjab province. Other TV channels reported that Imran was seen with his wife in London where he had gone to spent vacation with his two sons. There was no definite report about his third (would be) wife. Though, Geo identified her with single name Mariam.

However, Imran’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party rejected the news as rumor and said he will be back soon to take up political challenges. “This is not true. We are seeing the news channels and laughing,” said Naeem ul Haq, Central Information Secretary of the party. READ: Virat Kohli better than Sachin Tendulkar in critical moments, says Imran Khan

Imran last year married for the second time when he entered in wedlock with former BBC weather girl Reham Khan, but the marriage failed to prosper and the two separated before the end of the year.
