Imran Khan and Wife Sentenced to 14 Years in Tosha Khana Case

Imran Khan Tosha Khana Case

Islamabad: Pakistan’s former prime minister and Tehreek-e-Insaf Party (PTI) chief Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi have been sentenced to 14 years in prison in the Tosha Khana case. The Islamabad court passed the sentence. In addition, the court imposed a fine of Rs 787 million each on both of them.

The court also banned Imran from holding public office for 10 years. The court issued its verdict only eight days before the general elections in Pakistan.

Judge Muhammad Basheer heard the case in Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail, where he is serving a three-year prison sentence after being found corrupt in the Tosha Khana case. However, Imran’s wife Bushra Bibi did not appear in court today.

The rule is that valuables received as gifts must be deposited in the State Gift Depository (Toshakhana). When Imran was in power, the valuable gifts received during his visits to the Arab countries were paid in the Tosha Khana. Later, it is alleged that he bought a low price from here and sold it at a huge profit.

Yesterday, a special court sentenced Imran Khan and former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to 10 years in prison in the Cipher case where official documents were made public. The case is that the information in the diplomatic file was disclosed in the party rally held on March 27, 2022.

Imran’s documents were revealed alleging that there was an international conspiracy to topple his government. Meanwhile, the Tehreek-e-Insaf party claims that the case against Imran is false.
