The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday started the process of removing Imran Khan from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairmanship in the Toshakhana reference in which he has already been disqualified from his National Assembly seat.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, last month, the Commission had also sent the Toshakhana reference to the District and Sessions Judge for criminal proceedings against Imran Khan in the same reference.

And, Islamabad District Court of Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal had started the trial against former Prime Minister Imran Khan after receiving the reference of criminal proceedings from the ECP.

The Toshakhana reference was sent under Sections 137, 170, and 167 of the Election Act from the District Election Commissioner to the trial court with a request that Imran Khan should be tried for corrupt practice.

It is also appealed to the trial court to punish Imran Khan for his corrupt practice under sections 167 and 173 as imprisonment of three years and a fine may be imposed under these sections.
