A Rawalpindi accountability court indicted former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi in a £190 million corruption case. The new judge, Nasir Javed Rana, presided over the hearing at Adiala Jail where Imran Khan is currently incarcerated. The case involves allegations that Imran and Bushra Bibi obtained funds and land from Bahria Town Ltd for illegal purposes.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a corruption reference against Imran and seven others in connection with the Al-Qadir University. The case alleges that Imran played a key role in the illegal transfer of funds. Property tycoon Malik Riaz Hussain and others are also involved in the case.

The court read the charges against Imran and Bushra and summoned NAB witnesses for the next hearing. The reference states that the accused deliberately refused to provide information, establishing evidence of corruption and corrupt practices.

Imran and Bushra denied the charges, and their defense team confirmed the indictment. The reference pleads for the suspects to be tried and punished according to the law. The next hearing is scheduled for March 6.
