Islamabad [Pakistan], Feb 19 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Monday thanked his well-wishers for their prayers on the former cricketer's third marriage with his spiritual guide Bushra Maneka.

Khan on Monday tweeted, "I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes for my marriage."

Ending weeks of speculation on the union, the PTI on Sunday announced the marriage of the cricketer-turned-politician with Maneka in a simple ceremony held in Lahore.

As speculation swirled, Khan had angrily questioned if he had "sold" state secrets to India or "laundered" Pakistan's wealth to deserve a bad press.

Maneka, who is in her 40s, is from the Wattoo clan. She was married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad, Dawn News reported.

Khan had first tied the knot with Jemima Goldsmith in 1995 that ended in divorce after nine years in 2004. His second marriage with Reham Khan, then a TV anchor, lasted barely 10 months.(ANI)
