Judge Zafar Iqbal issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Mr. Khan over his persistent absence in the case filed by the ECP against the former prime minister for concealing Toshakhana gifts, and his personal properties.

Referring to last August’s decision, Mr. Khan was disqualified in the Toshakhana case for not sharing details about the Toshakhana gifts and their alleged sale.
