A fake Twitter handle of Australian super model Lara Bingle accused former cricketer and Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan of sexual harassment.

A fake Twitter handle of Australian super model Lara Bingle accused former cricketer and Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan of sexual harassment.

On Monday, 16 October, the fake handle of Bingle tweeted that Weinstein, according to her, is nowhere near Pakistan’s Imran Khan and that she was glad she never met Khan again.

 

The handle claimed that Khan sexually harassed her when she met him at a party in London in June 2013.

However, this was not Bingle’s account. She has a verified Twitter handle that goes by the name Lara Worthington. The handle has been active since August 2010 and has over one lac followers.

 

Imran Khan’s Supporters clapped back

Fans and followers of Khan took to social media to allege that the ruling party planted the tweet from the fake handle.

Although Imran Khan’s supporters called the news fake and didn’t fall in the trap, Pakistani media broke the news. Geo News was the first channel to air the news. Others followed it and soon the news went viral on all TV channels and their social media accounts.
