In the tweet, the information minisiter claimed that Khan has caused no losses to the national exchequer and added that he is a businessman and his case is "less serious".


On April 11, the Lahore High Court (LHC) suspended the 2018 life imprisonment sentence awarded to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi in the ephedrine quota case. The court ordered Abbasi's release on bail.
