  • Former Pak PM Imran Khan is likely to get arrested in the prohibited funding case against him.

Imran Khan news: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to take back the notice issued against him in the prohibited funding case. According to a media report from The News, he is likely to get arrested in the case, as FIA issued a second notice to Khan.

“The final decision to arrest Imran Khan could be taken after issuing three notices,” the report said, quoting highly-placed sources in the FIA. Khan, the cricketer-turned-politician, received the first notice last Wednesday, but he refused to appear before the FIA investigation team.

The FIA has traced five companies related to Khan’s party that was operating in the USA, Australia, Canada, Britain, and Belgium, and they were not mentioned in the reports submitted to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the report said, quoting sources.

“Neither am I liable to answer to you nor is it liable on me to provide information to you. If notice is not taken back in two days, then I will take legal action against you,” he said in a written response to the top investigation agency.

“The FIA committee has collected enough evidence to prove Imran guilty of hiding the factual position from the ECP,” the report said, adding that the third and probably the final notice would be issued next week.

Earlier this month, Pakistan’s Election Commission said Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party received funds against the rules from 34 foreign nationals, including a businesswoman of Indian origin, in a major setback to the former prime minister.

A three-member bench of the ECP issued a show cause notice to Khan's party for receiving prohibited funding from foreign nationals and foreign-based companies and keeping it under wraps. It also sought an explanation from the party and its chief Khan.

The case was filed in November 2014 by the party’s founding member Akbar S Babar, who is no longer associated with PTI.
