What is Toshakhana case?

The Toshakhana is a section of the cabinet where valuable gifts given by governments, heads of state and foreign guests of other countries are kept. According to the rules, it is necessary to keep the gifts received from the heads of other countries or dignitaries in the Toshakhana.

Imran Khan became the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018. He had received expensive gifts from the rulers of Arab countries during his visits. He had also received valuable gifts from heads of states of many European countries, which were deposited by Imran in Toshakhana. But Imran Khan later bought them from Toshakhana at cheap prices and sold them at a huge profit. His government had given legal permission to this whole process.

The former prime minister had told the Election Commission during the hearing that these gifts were bought from the state treasury for Rs 2.15 crore and by selling them, he made a profit of about Rs 5.8 crore. The gifts included a Graff watch, a pair of cufflinks, an expensive pen, a ring and four Rolex watches, among other gifts.
