Toshakhana case: Judge remarks it seems Imran Khan won’t appear in court
Additional District and Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal hearing the Toshakhana case against the PTI chairman said on Tuesday that it seemed that former prime minister Imran Khan would not appear in court today as well.
The 70-year-old ex-premier, who has been recovering from a gunshot injury from an assassination attempt in Wazirabad last year, has thrice skipped indictment hearings in an Islamabad sessions court in the case.
He is accused of concealing, in his assets declarations, details of the gifts he retained from the Toshakhana — a repository where presents handed to government officials from foreign officials are kept.
Imran was set to be indicted in the Toshakhana Reference on Feb 28, but his lawyer had requested the judge that he be exempted from the hearing because he had to appear in several other courts. His indictment was deferred twice before.
