During Imran Khan’s tenure as Prime Minister, there was an allegation of selling expensive gifts received from foreign countries without handing them over to the government treasury. The investigative agencies that investigated the case had submitted a charge sheet against Imran Khan to the court. Now the court has heard the case and announced the verdict, along with Imran Khan, his wife has also been sentenced to jail.
General elections will be held in Pakistan on February 8. Just a few days before the election, the PTI party workers faced a double shock. Imran Khan has already been sentenced to 10 years in the government secret information leak scam and now he has to serve 14 years in the gift scam.
Responding to this, the PTI spokesperson described it as another dark day for the judicial system of Pakistan. PTI has expressed outrage that the justice system has collapsed in Pakistan.
Imran Khan was arrested in August last year. Imran Khan was interrogated in jail during his detention. Now the court has sentenced Imran Khan and his wife Bushara Bibi to joint imprisonment. But the lawyer for Imran Khan said that Bushara Bibi has not been arrested till now.
Imran Khan married Bushara Bibi in 2018. Bushara Bibi is the third wife of Imran Khan. The couple was married just a few months before he was elected as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Bushara Bibi is a spiritual practitioner and mentor. Imran met Bushara Bibi at a spiritual event. Later they both got married. Bushara Bibi’s public appearances are extremely rare.
