Did first lady Bushra Imran and Khawer Maneka divorce amicably?
ISLAMABAD - Prominent journalist Sohail Warraich, in an article has revealed that an intense tug of war and acrimony persisted between Khawer Maneka and Bushra Imran.

In the first incident that took place on August 5, Sohail Waraich writes that Mubashira Maneka and Ibrahim Maneka, children of Farid Maneka and Bushra, were intercepted by the police. A heated argument ensued between police and Ibrahim who contacted his father by mobile phone. Maneka rushed to the spot and took his children away.
According to an inquiry report prepared by the Punjab Police, Ibrahim said in his statement that the incident took place when he along with his sister was walking to the shrine of Baba Faird.
After the incident Khawar Farid conveyed to his ex wife that the police had acted at her behest.
