The National Accountability Bureau on Friday took notice of former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s Toshakhana scandal, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to sources, the anti-graft watchdog would seek the payment and sale record of Toshakhana gifts. The Toshakhana record would also be sought from the cabinet division.  

The watchdog would probe the transaction of proceeds received by Imran Khan through sale of Toshakhana gifts. 

Sources said that the NAB chairman would form a special team to pursue the case. The team would be instructed to complete the Toshakana case inquiry against Imran Khan within a specified timeframe.

The NAB has started retrieving record of the Toshakhana scandal against Imran. 

Sources said that it has been decided to take action against the former premier after the watchdog received complaints of enormous misappropriations in the gifts offered by foreign dignitaries.

It is expected that legal action would be taken against Imran Khan, Bushra Bibi, and former ministers in the next few days. 

It has also been decided to include the officials of the previous government in the probe. 

Sources revealed that there is a clear difference in the number of declared gifts offered to Imran Khan and the members of his previous cabinet and the money.
