Islamabad [Pakistan], April 6 (ANI): Imran Khan’s step-son Musa Maneka on Tuesday said that his family has nothing to do with the ‘deals’ done by Farah Khan, who is believed to be a close friend of the caretaker Prime Minister’s wife Bushra Bibi and who left Pakistan for Dubai on Sunday amid corruption allegations.

Maneka is the younger son of Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi from her previous marriage.

“Farah Khan has gone to Dubai to seek residence there. Our family has no link with the alleged deals done by Farah Khan,” said Maneka, adding, “she (Farah Khan) did wrong to Prime Minister Imran Khan and my mother (Bushra Bibi),” Geo News reported.

“Farah Gujjar, while using a Punjab government’s plane, had a bag that was worth USD 90,000,” claimed Ismail reported Geo TV. Ismail also alleged that Farah Khan was a frontwoman of Usman Buzdar, the former chief minister of Punjab.
