ISLAMABAD: Reham Khan, wife of Chairman PTI Imran Khan, on Wednesday took a u-turn on the name of her institution from where she completed her degree after the story of Daily Mail, Samaa reported.
The name of institution which previously was North Lindsay college is now changed to Grimsby Institute.
Reham also deleted her old tweet which said that she studied broadcast journalism from North Lindsay college.
In my statement I have put the course code & specific campus. Also additional info on website now. Please move on to serious issues.

Earlier, Reham criticised Pakistan TV channels and said that this is the reason why she does not watch them.
She also said that she does not read Daily Mail because of such stories.
According to a London-based newspaper “Daily Mail”, Reham Khan, a 42-year-old TV anchor, had stated on her official website that she won her post as a reporter on the BBC regional show South Today after starting a postgraduate course ‘in Broadcast Journalism at North Lindsay (sic) College’, in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.
However, according to officials at North Lindsey, it has never offered such a course, the newspaper reported.
“Indeed, it does not teach journalism at all. Furthermore, they can find no record of anyone bearing Khan’s name or age ever having enrolled,” Daily Mail report said.
The newspaper quoted a spokesman as saying that “we do not have anyone by those names or date of birth having attended this college. We have never done a degree in broadcast journalism.” – Samaa
