Imran Khan says last six months have been ‘difficult to handle’ for his family in UK

Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan says the tumultuous last six months have been “difficult to handle” for his two sons living in the UK with his ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith. Mr Khan survived an assassination attempt in November last year, taking three bullet wounds to the legs from a gunman armed with an automatic pistol at a political rally. Speaking earlier this week in an exclusive interview with Independent Urdu, Mr Khan said: “I speak to them. They’re worried because there was an assassination attempt on me – that’s when they came to see me... It’s obvious[ly] not just the fear of assassination [but also] being put into jail. You know, for all your sons, it’s quite difficult to handle.” Watch more videos at the Independent TV: Click here to subscribe to The Independent: About The Independent: Making Change Happen.
