Imran Khan arrested and debarred from Politics

Imran Khan arrested and debarred from Politics

Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan was arrested today after a court sentenced him to three years in jail in a corruption case. An Islamabad trial court barred him from participating in active politics for five years. The 70-year-old politician, also a cricket legend,  was found guilty of illegally selling gifts he received from foreign dignitaries during his term as prime minister.

The allegation includes the gifts included watches given by a royal family, according to government officials, who have alleged previously that Khan's aides sold them in Dubai.

Islamabad's district and sessions court judge Humayun Dilawar announced the verdict in a surprise move on Saturday. 

Imran Khan denies any wrongdoing and his legal team said they would be filing an immediate appeal. It is a curious case that Rahul Gandhi in India has faced in India recently.
