ISLAMABAD:

The government has decided to further tighten the noose against PTI Chairman and former premier Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case and plans to file an application with the NAB and FIA in this regard.

Last month, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had disqualified the former premier under Article 63(1)(p) in the Toshakhana reference.

A four-member bench of the ECP declared Imran's National Assembly seat vacant as it unanimously decided that he had misled officials about the gifts he received from foreign dignitaries during his tenure as the prime minister.

The reference against Imran stated that he had “deliberately concealed his assets relating to Toshakhna gifts retained by him particularly in year 2018 and 2019… in the statements of assets and liabilities filed for the year 2017-201 8 and 2018-19”.

It further said that as per the record, the gifts were purchased from the Toshakhana for Rs21.5 million on the basis of their assessed value, while they were valued at around Rs108 million.
