What is the Toshakhana corruption case?
Toshakhana is a division under the administrative control of the Cabinet Division, which was established in 1974. It stores valuable gifts given by other governments and heads of state and foreign dignitaries to rulers, parliamentarians, bureaucrats and officials.
Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan was disqualified by the Election Commission of Pakistan in October last year for not sharing details of the sale of these costly gifts.
Ban on arrest of Imran's wife Bushra Bibi
Meanwhile, an accountability court in Islamabad restrained the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting PTI chief Imran Khan's wife Bushra Bibi in the Al-Qadir Trust case by granting her interim bail.
Bushra Bibi's lawyer Khwaja Haris appeared in the court and filed an application for the interim bail of Bushra Bibi. During the hearing, Haris told the court that Bushra Bibi had not received any notice from the anti-corruption body.
After this, the court accepted the bail application till May 31 and issued notice to NAB seeking its reply. Judge Muhammad Basheer also directed Imran's wife to furnish a surety of Rs five lakh.
