Several rumors began to circulate on social media of which one was that Bukhari was drunken and was thrashed by some people outside a Pall Mall nightclub. But police confirmed that no such incident was reported, police official stated

“If anyone had been beaten with iron rods in our area, we would have been in an emergency situation. No such thing happened”

Case twisted when Naeem Bukhari rejected rumors regarding to his accident. He told media person:

“I fainted and suffered a collapse at an underground station in London,

“My wife and daughter were with me when I fell flat on my face and suffered injuries,” 

Moreover he declared social media’s propaganda completely false.

Bukhari told his condition is stable now and will be discharged from hospital soon.
