The court declared the Tosakhana case against Imran Khan inadmissible

The Islamabad High Court has declared inadmissible the Tosakhana case related to the sale of state gifts against Pakistan’s former Prime Minister and Tehreek-e Insaf (PTI) party chief Imran Khan. Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Amir Farooq announced the verdict after Imran Khan filed a petition against the decision of the judicial court filed by the country’s Election Commission.
Earlier, Imran Khan was summoned in this case. Instructions were also given to provide records of all state gifts. Imran Khan reportedly received 108 gifts from Toshakhana.
The Toshakhana case was filed against Imran Khan last year. Election Commission alleges that Imran Khan failed to declare the funds he received after selling gifts to foreign dignitaries.
Besides, Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi was also summoned by the National Accountability Bureau in the NCA scam case.
Imran Khan, meanwhile, alleged that the Pakistani government had ‘conceived a plan’ to keep him in jail. He claimed that his arrest and jailing was completely premeditated. He also denied all the allegations against him in the corruption case.
Incidentally, Toshakhana is a repository where gifts received from foreign dignitaries are kept.
Imran Khan, who came from cricket to politics, was sworn in as the elected Prime Minister of Pakistan on August 18, 2018. He was ousted in the face of a no-confidence vote in Parliament in April last year. This brought the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) back to power. And Shahbaz Sharif, the younger brother of the country’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, became the prime minister. Imran is going through various crises after being ousted from power.
Last August, a case was filed against Imran Khan for allegedly selling four gifts from Toshakhana. Toshakhana is a division under the administrative control of the Cabinet Division in Pakistan. It preserves the valuable gifts that top government officials receive from abroad. According to Toshakhana rules, anyone who receives a gift must report it to the cabinet department.
