ISLAMABAD: Serious discrepancies have been found in the money trail provided by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan regarding the purchase of more than 300 kanals in Banigala on which the politician has built his house.
A three-judge bench of apex court headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Thursday, raised nine questions regarding Khan’s money trail. The bench questioned how the PTI chief’s agent Rashid Khan paid the seller nine months before having received the amount from Jemima Khan.
Further, the bench not only raised questions over the construction documents, but also asked Khan to provide complete records of Jemima’s bank statement, as details regarding how she transferred the amount to Rashid’s account were missing.
Unsatisfied with the revenue record regarding the transfer of land in Jemima’s name, the bench asked Khan how he would reconcile the record. Questions were also raised over Khan’s failure to disclose his ownership of an offshore company in 2002 nomination papers.
