Pakistan’s Former PM Disqualified, Faces 3 Years Improsonment in Toshakhana Case

Imran Khan, the Chairman of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) party and former Prime Minister of Pakistan, has been arrested from his residence in Zaman Park. This arrest followed a judgment by the Islamabad sessions court in the Toshakhana case.

In the Toshakhana case, Imran Khan was accused of misusing his authority and filing false details with the election commission. The court found him guilty of corrupt practices and sentenced him to three years in prison. Additionally, he has been disqualified from holding any public office for a period of five years.

As part of the punishment, the court also issued arrest warrants for Imran Khan and imposed a fine of Rs100,000 (Pakistani Rupees) on him.

Toshakhana is a place where gifts received by public officials from foreign dignitaries are stored. The case against Imran Khan was related to the alleged receipt of gifts during his time as the Prime Minister and the reporting of these gifts to the election commission. The court concluded that he provided false information regarding these gifts and committed corrupt practices, which led to his conviction.

Following his arrest, Imran Khan is expected to be transferred to Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore, where he will serve his three-year prison sentence.

It’s important to note that the legal process and court decisions are subject to scrutiny and appeals. As the situation unfolds, further developments may arise in this case.
