Bushra Bibi, former first lady and Imran Khan were listed as residents of Bani Gala in the text of the petition. They got remarried in February 2018, and Mufti Saeed testified about it in front of the civil judge.
According to the wording, the court should set aside the civil judge ruling about Imran Khan illegitimate union. The civil judge ruled that the complaint was inadmissible and that the legal prerequisites had not been satisfied. The appeal ought to be accepted.
Imran Khan was to face charges, according to the appellant request to the judge. It should be noted that today was two months ago. Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi were accused of having an illegal marriage.
The application had been rejected by the District and Sessions Court. Which also highlighted that it lacked the authority to hear a case challenging marriage in ‘iddati.
