Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, who on Friday addressed reporters in Karachi after the Supreme Court handed down its judgment in the case brought by the PML-N’s Hanif Abbasi, has said he “thanked God for being cleared in this fake case filed by a drug dealer.”
The drug dealer comment was targeted at Abbasi, who currently faces charges of illegally selling ephedrine that was used in the manufacture of illicit substances. “How fitting that money launderer Nawaz Sharif came after me through a drug dealer,” Khan said.
He maintained that he had presented a clear money trail and sixty documents in the case despite never having been a public office holder.
Therefore, Khan added, he should not be compared to the Sharifs, who had presented only one document — the Qatari letter — “which everyone knows is fake.”
