Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and former prime minister Imran Khan will be indicted in the Toshakhana reference in court today.
Last week, a district and sessions court set February 7 as the date for framing charges against the PTI chief in the Toshakhana reference.
The reference was filed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in November last year, praying the court to proceed against Imran under criminal law for allegedly misleading officials about the gifts he received from foreign dignitaries during his tenure as the premier.

The ECP had requested that the PTI chief be convicted for the offences mentioned under sections 167 (corrupt practice) and 173 (making or publishing a false statement or declaration) of the Elections Act 2017.
It added that as per the record, the state gifts were purchased from the Toshakhana for Rs21.5 million on the basis of their assessed value, while they were valued at around Rs108 million.
Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal directed Imran to submit surety bonds worth Rs20,000, instructing him to ensure in-person attendance in court at the next hearing to take place today.
