ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) petitioned against former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakana case, and a district and sessions court in Islamabad on Monday reserved judgement. Khan was accused of engaging in corrupt practises, which the former premier denies, and the Election Commission filed the Toshakhana reference against him in November.
After hearing arguments from both sides, the court reserved its decision, which will be made public soon. In its decision regarding the Toshakhana matter, the ECP declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman ineligible.
“According to Imran Khan’s account, he had acquired the gifts from Toshakhana paying 21.564 million rupees, but the Cabinet Division maintained that the items had a worth of 107.943 million,” the ECP stated in the written verdict. He had around half the value of the governmental presents in his bank account. Imran Khan was required to disclose the cash and bank account information in his tax forms, but he did not, according to the ECP judgement.
