ISLAMABAD - Reham Khan has claimed that a cricketer from the national team had been "constantly trying to contact me".
She claimed that when she finally spoke to the player, he told her to "stop saying what you are saying about Imran."
Reham further alleged that after their divorce, Khan had sent her a message stating, "You should leave for the UK and give the impression that your kids could not be settled here [Pakistan]."
Terming it a "masked threat", she said she "know[s] the ability of these people [PTI members]".
Reham said people had been linking her to the PML-N after her recent statements, but a senior leader from the ruling party had called her this week and suggested that she stop talking about Khan.
She said other senior PML-N leaders had also asked her to keep mum about Khan.
"They had also asked me to stay quiet on the Ayesha Gulalai [harrassment] issue," she told DawnNews.
Responding to her allegation, PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said her claims were "rubbish".
"The threat [allegedly issued by Khan] was so effective that she lived in Pakistan for two years [after the divorce] and only in elections year she remembered the threat and that too just before [the] launch of her 'sponsored' book.
"PTI is not MQM [Muttahida Qaumi Movement] and we have no militant groups or the Punjab police at our disposal."
