Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership is in crisis as the chief, Imran Khan, went incommunicado, on Tuesday. Prominent Pakistani journalist Salman Masood took to Twitter to inform about the situation, adding his WhatsApp was also shut down. 

"A huge sense of crisis within PTI leadership right now. Imran Khan is incommunicado with almost everyone. His WhatsApp has been shut down for the most part of the day. Bani Gala house does not have a lot of visitors right now," Masood tweeted. 



This came hours after Imran Khan, in a move to defend himself over the recent marriage controversy revolving around him, went on a Twitter spree, stating he had been wondering if he committed any crime. 

The former-cricketer turned politicians proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka, but she asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children.

Whereas, a media report, on Saturday said the PTI chief got married on New Year's Day in Lahore. The rumours were later thrashed by the party.
