Imran Khan Arrested: Case Against Ex-Pak PM Explained In 5 Points

Imran Khan was arrested outside the Islamabad High Court on Tuesday.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was arrested by paramilitary Rangers on Tuesday. Mr Khan was whisked away from outside the Islamabad High Court where he had arrived for hearing in a corruption case.

Here are five points on the case against Imran Khan:

  1. The 70-year-old faces dozens of cases in Pakistan. The arrest on Tuesday happened in National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) investigation into the Al-Qadir Trust case, as per Geo News.

  2. Dunya News accessed the documents related to the deal that show Mr Khan, his wife Bushra Bibi and other leaders of his party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) formed a trust to set up Al-Qadir University to impart “quality education” in Jhelum, in Pakistan’s Punjab province when he came to power.

  3. The management of the trust was handed over to a real estate developer who donated 458 kanals (231,683 square metres) of land, which was valued at 244 million Pakistan rupees in 2019, according to The News.

  4. The land was then transferred, first to a businessman named Zulfi Bukhari and subsequently to the trust after its creation in January 2021. It is located in Mouza Bakrala, Sohawa tehsil of Jhelum district.

  5. For a year, the trust received donations worth millions. The expenditures, meanwhile, were not much as the university had enrolled only 100 students till December 2022. As per the charges, Mr Khan and others allegedly adjusted Pakistan rupees 50 billion – 190 million pounds at the time – sent by Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to the government. An investigation was launched after Mr Khan was ousted in April 2022.
