About the Toshkhana Case:

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife, Bushra Bibi, have each been sentenced to 14 years in prison in the Toshakhana case.

Both Khan and his wife face accusations of graft in the sale of state gifts. The convictions include charges of concealing the actual costs of received gifts, not disclosing gifts, and purchasing gifts from Toshakhana at undervalued rates, causing a loss to the exchequer.

The Toshakhana is a federal government department that is in charge of all the valuables received by officials and elected leaders while in office. According to Toshakhana rules, gifts remain the property of the state unless sold at an open auction.
