An accountability court on Saturday sent PTI founder Imran Khan to jail on a 14-day judicial remand in the Toshakhana case.

The Accountability Court Islamabad Judge Muhammad Bashir conducted the hearing on the case in Adiala jail where the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) sought a further 3-day physical remand of the former prime minister after the expiry of his earlier two-day remand.

However, the court rejected the plea and sent Khan to jail on a 14-day judicial remand.

It is pertinent to mention that Khan was arrested by the NAB in the case on December 13 after an accountability court refused to renew his bail in the case.

Judge Muhammad Bashir presided over the case’s hearing in Adiala Jail where the decision was reserved before being announced around 8pm.

The judge ruled that prima facie, there were illegal practices involved in the receiving of Toshakhana gifts.

On December 15, the court approved a two-day physical remand of Khan in the Toshakhana case.

The Deputy Prosecutor General of NAB, Sardar Mazhar Abbasi, and the investigation team appeared before the court after the NAB sought a seven-day physical remand of the former prime minister.
