The Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Amir Farooq has ruled that the Tosha Khana case against the Chairman of the PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) is inadmissible. The court accepted the petition filed by the PTI Chairman, stating that the complaint should have been filed within four months, rendering it inadmissible. As a result, the Tosha Khana criminal case against the former Prime Minister has been closed.
Previously, the Sessions Court had deemed the Tosha Khana case as cognizable and charged the PTI Chairman. However, the recent decision by the Islamabad High Court has overturned that ruling. It is worth noting that the Election Commission of Pakistan had filed a complaint against the Chairman PTI in the Sessions Court, while the PTI Chairman had also filed an application contesting the validity of the complaint, arguing that it was improperly filed and should not be considered acceptable.
The petition further emphasized that the complaint should have been filed within four months, and beyond that timeframe, it should not be considered admissible. Furthermore, the dismissal of the case was requested due to the failure of the authorized officer of the ECP (Election Commission of Pakistan) to file the application.
In the past, the Election Commission had disqualified the Chairman of PTI in the Tosha Khana case, but with the recent ruling by the Islamabad High Court, the case against the PTI Chairman has been declared inadmissible and closed.
