Toshakhana case: Imran Khan sentenced to 3 years in prison, disqualified for 5 years

  • Imran Khan, PTI Chairman, found guilty in Toshakhana case.
  • Imran Khan has been sentenced to three years in prison and imposed a fine of Rs100,000.

The Islamabad District and Sessions Court has announced its verdict in the Toshakhana criminal case, finding PTI Chairman Imran Khan guilty of the crime. He has been sentenced to three years in prison and disqualified from holding any public office for five years. The court also rejected Imran Khan’s appeal against declaring the case maintainable.

According to the verdict, Imran Khan provided false information to the election commission, and he has been found guilty of corrupt practices. The court also issued arrest warrants for him and imposed a fine of Rs100,000. Failure to pay the fine will result in an additional six months of jail time.

Following the court’s decision, a heavy contingent of police surrounded Imran Khan’s residence in Lahore, sealing off all roads leading to the property. An armoured personnel carrier has also been stationed outside his residence, and elite force personnel have been deployed on Canal Road.

The Toshakhana criminal case against Imran Khan was related to his non-appearance in court for extending final arguments. The judge had previously adjourned the hearing multiple times due to the absence of the petitioner’s lawyer.

In response to the court’s verdict, Imran Khan has moved the Supreme Court, challenging the decision made by the Islamabad High Court. His legal team has filed an application seeking to declare the case non-maintainable and to halt its trial. The appeal argues that the high court committed a legal error by remanding the issue of maintainability back to the same trial court judge, who had already expressed his view on the matter.

The Supreme Court has been requested to declare the decision of the Islamabad High Court chief justice null and void and to issue a stay order on the proceedings of the trial court. The Toshakhana case has been a matter of contention, and Imran Khan’s legal team aims to seek a fair trial and resolution of the case.
