Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) top leader Khawaja Asif blamed Imran Khan of speculating in Dubai real estate with the donations he had collected for his charity hospital for cancer patients.
“Imran Khan had transferred Rs4.50 billion outside the country from Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital (SKMH) accounts,” alleged Asif at a press conference.
Imran Khan’s Response
The PTI chief denied the allegations. “Endowment fund is meant for investment and our fund of 30 million dollars is a guaranteed amount and contains not a single penny from Shaukat Khanum’s Zakat fund,” Khan said. He said that the endowment fund uses this money for investment and earns profit on it.
