Income and accounts of Imran Khan to be scrutinized

The government has decided to bring back Farah Khan Gogi, a close aide of former prime minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, to face investigation regarding her bank accounts, sources said on Thursday.

The sources further divulged that the legal process has been set into motion to bring back Farah Gogi from Dubai as her presence was necessary for the investigation.

According to the sources, Farah Gogi had acted as Imran Khan’s “frontman” and the investigators would try to establish facts from her.

It has also been decided to obtain details of bank accounts of four employees of the PTI Central Secretariat. The employees are names as Tahir Iqbal, Muhammad Nauman Afzal, Muhammad Arshad and Muhammad Rafiq.

The sources said the record is being extracted about the funds landed in the personal accounts of these PTI employees from 2008 to 2022. The record of these personal accounts is being sought from the State Bank of Pakistan along with the foreign funding record of Imran Khan from 2013 to 2022.

Only five years’ record of PTI’s foreign funding was available, that is from 2008-9 to 2012-13 which the State Bank had forwarded to the Election Commission of Pakistan.

The sources further claimed that after this period the PTI had received much larger amounts illegally. The record would show from whom Imran Khan had received funds during the PTI’s sit-in in Islamabad. Independent auditors will run forensic test of the record. FIA and FBR will initiate their own actions after getting the records on their own.

The decision is aimed at getting hold of the record of PTI’s foreign bank accounts in the US, UK, Canada, Norway, Finland, New Zealand, Australia and some other countries.
