Accountability Court Indicts Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi in Toshakhana Reference

RAWALPINDI: On Tuesday, an accountability court indicted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan and his spouse Bushra Bibi in the Toshakhana reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The decision was made during a hearing conducted in Adiala jail, where the former prime minister is currently incarcerated.

A five-member special prosecution team from NAB reviewed the reference against the couple, with Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir presiding over the proceedings related to the Toshakhana and £190 million cases.

The previous day, the court had postponed the indictment after Bushra Bibi failed to appear. During the latest hearing, NAB prosecutor Muzaffar Abbasi, along with his team, was present, while Imran Khan was represented by lawyers Latif Khosa and Umair Niazi. Bushra Bibi was provided with a copy of the £190 million case during the hearing.

Simultaneously, Imran Khan has challenged his disqualification in the Toshakhana case. A five-member larger bench is set to take up the petitions on January 12.

Toshakhana Case

The Toshakhana case revolves around allegations that Imran Khan purchased gifts received during his prime ministership at lower rates and subsequently sold them for substantial profits.

The gifts, including high-value watches, were claimed to have been sold in Dubai. The 70-year-old politician is accused of misusing his 2018 to 2022 premiership in this regard. The Election Commission had previously disqualified him under Article 63(1)(p) of the Constitution.
