Toshakhana case Court summons Imran on May 10 for indictment


An Islamabad district and sessions court on Friday summoned former prime minister Imran Khan on May 10 for the framing of charges against him in the Toshakhana case, in which the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has sought proceedings under the criminal law against the PTI chief.

The ECP had approached the court on the matter on a reference filed by lawmakers from the ruling coalition last year.

The reference alleges that Imran had “deliberately concealed” details of the gifts he retained from the Toshaskhana — a repository where presents handed to government officials from foreign officials are kept — during his time as the prime minister and proceeds from their reported sales.
