Imran Khan arrested : What is the case?

Imran Khan's government came to power in Pakistan in 2018. During this period he received many expensive gifts from the Arab rulers. The gifts included an expensive wristwatch, a pair of cufflinks, an expensive pen, a ring and four Rolex watches. They were deposited in the Toshakhana (country warehouse). Later, the opposition parties accused Imran Khan that he bought the goods at discounted rates and sold them at a huge profit.

It was alleged that Imran Khan bought from Tosha Khanya for Rs 2.15 crore and made a profit of Rs 5.8 crore by selling the same. The gifts included a graph watch, a pair of cufflinks, an expensive pen, a ring and four Rolex watches. During the hearing of the case, Imran had said that after paying Rs 21.56 crore, around Rs 58 lakh was received from the sale of gifts purchased from the state treasury. He also claimed that there was no malpractice. A non-bailable arrest warrant was issued by the session court judge on February 28 in this case.

Imran was disqualified in the Toshakhana case

The Election Commission has disqualified Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief Imran Khan from membership of Parliament for making false statements in the Toshakhana case. According to Pakistani law, any gift received from a foreign dignitary must be deposited in a state depository or toshakhana. If the head of state wants to keep the gift, he has to pay an amount equal to its value. This is decided through an auction process. These gifts are either kept in a toshakhana or can be auctioned and the proceeds go to the national treasury.
