She further said that her sister could never turn against Imran Khan.

"She is with Khan Sahib and she will be with Khan Sahib forever," she said.

What are the cases against Bushra Bibi?

This comes after a trial court handed seven-year sentences to both Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi in the "un-Islamic nikah" case. The case was registered after a plea by Bushra Bibi's former husband Khawar Maneka who claimed that her marriage to Imran Khan was illegal and un-Islamic.

Khawar Maneka called Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi's marriage "fraudulent" claiming that the marriage was solemnised during her iddat after her divorce from him.

The petition reportedly read, “That above said nikah and the marriage ceremony was neither legal nor Islamic as it was solemnised without observing iddah period.”

Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi have also been sentenced to 14 years with rigorous punishment in the Toshakhana case.
