What is the truth?

The ‘Dawn’ article dated 10, November 2022 reported that Imran Khan’s sons Qasim and Suleman Khan who live in the UK arrive at Lahore to meet their father. The same news was also reported by a few other news media outlets. But none of the articles published recent photographs. All the images used were of representation purpose.
