Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan, has been put on high alert as Prime Minister Imran Khan is en route to appear in the Toshakhana case. The case relates to allegations of corruption against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other politicians who allegedly received luxury cars as gifts from the government in the 1990s.
Imran Khan has been summoned by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to appear in court as a witness in the case. The NAB has tightened security in the area around the court and deployed additional security personnel to maintain law and order.
The Toshakhana case is one of several corruption cases being investigated by the NAB as part of its anti-corruption drive in Pakistan. The NAB has been cracking down on corruption in the country’s political and business circles, and has brought charges against several high-profile politicians and businessmen.
Imran Khan, who came to power in 2018 on an anti-corruption platform, has pledged to root out corruption in Pakistan and has been a strong advocate for the NAB’s anti-corruption efforts. His appearance in the Toshakhana case as a witness is seen as a sign of his government’s commitment to fighting corruption in Pakistan.
The high alert in Islamabad reflects the sensitivity and political significance of the Toshakhana case and underscores the need for the government to ensure that the legal proceedings are carried out smoothly and without any disruptions.
