NAB Summons Bushra Bibi In Toshakhana Case Tomorrow
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) summoned Bushra Bibi – PTI chairman Imran Khan's wife – in the Toshakhana case, on Monday.

A team from the bureau arrived at the ex-premier's Zaman Park residence in Lahore to deliver the notice for the former First Lady.

The authority had earlier summoned Imran and Bushra to the Rawalpindi office on March 9 to investigate the case. The notice for the PTI chief was delivered to his Bani Gala residence.

On Sunday, Additional District and Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal cancelled warrants issued for Imran in the Toshakhana reference and summoned him on March 30. Judge Iqbal also postponed the PTI chairman's indictment in the case.

The gifts received from Toshakhana by any public officeholder should be declared in the wealth statement of the tax year in which it is acquired free of cost or after paying the required amount of assessed value as per prescribed rules. Non-declaration attracts Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution.

Last month, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) registered a case of money laundering against Farah Gogi – a confidante of Bushra – and initiated an investigation.

The case, which is related to the embezzlement of billions, was registered after a formal application was received by the Punjab anti-corruption department.

As per the plea, the accused took billions in return for the appointment of RPOs, commissioners, DPOs, and DCs during the rule of the former premier and the current chairman of the PTI.

Farah is also accused of registering an expensive piece of land in the Faisalabad Industrial Estate in her company’s name for peanuts.

According to the FIR filed, she also made millions by pressuring officials for illegal allotment of tenders for the projects.

It was revealed during the investigation that some Rs840 million were transferred to the bank accounts of the accused during the previous government's rule, which didn't coincide with the means of earning.
