In a major decision, the Islamabad High Court has said no to Imran Khan’s request to change the decision that disqualified him for five years in the Toshakhana case. This means Imran Khan cannot take part in elections or hold public office for the next five years. The Election Commission has also confirmed this decision officially.
This legal matter is about Imran Khan being accused of something called Toshakhana. The court decided that Imran Khan’s disqualification will stay as it is, making it an important part of the political situation.
In another news story, a group called the National Accountability Bureau, or NAB, has started a case about Toshakhana against Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi. NAB’s Investigation Officer Sahil Arif, along with Investigation Officer Waqar-ul-Hassan, put forward this case. The court’s office is now looking closely at the details.
According to the information in the case, Imran Khan, when he was the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, and Bushra Bibi got a total of 108 gifts. Out of these, they kept 58 gifts worth 14 crore rupees. The case says they got a jewelry set from the Saudi Crown Prince, and it suggests that the value of this set is not as much as they say.
This decision is a big moment in Imran Khan’s political journey, showing that he is facing legal and accountability problems right now.
