In a significant development, the accountability court in Islamabad delivered a major blow to former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife, Bushra Bibi. The couple has been sentenced to 14 years of rigorous imprisonment in the Toshakhana case, as reported by local media in Pakistan on Wednesday.

The court not only imposed a stringent prison term but also barred Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi from holding any public office for the next 10 years. Additionally, a substantial fine of Rs 787 million was levied on the duo.

The Toshakhana case revolves around allegations of misusing state resources, specifically luxury vehicles, by public figures. The court’s verdict underscores the accountability measures being taken to address corruption and misuse of power. Imran Khan, a prominent political figure, now faces a challenging legal predicament, casting a shadow over his political future.

As the nation absorbs this development, the sentencing raises questions about the broader implications for Pakistani politics and the ongoing efforts to combat corruption within the government.
