Bushra Bibi challenges the Nikah case’s verdict in court.

Published

on

By

According to specifics, Bushra Bibi’s attorney, Khalid Yousaf Chaudhry, entered a plea on her behalf, requesting that the trial court’s decision from February 3 be deemed invalid.

Salman Akram Raja, Salman Safdar, and other individuals will also be parties in this action, while Bushra Bibi’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka and the federal government have been named respondents in the plea.

According to the plea, the former first lady went to her mother’s house in August 2017 after divorcing in April.

Furthermore, the ruling is unlawful, immoral, and un-Islamic because the matter pertaining to Bushra Bibi and Khan’s nikah was outside the court’s jurisdiction.

In a case concerning their marriage during the latter’s Iddat era, a court in Islamabad earlier this year condemned former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi to seven years in prison apiece.

The decision on the lawsuit submitted by Bushra’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka in a temporary court at Adiala jail was announced by senior civil judge Qudratullah. The pair was also fined Rs 500,000 apiece by the court.

Bushra Bibi and Imran Khan’s marriage
In February 2018, the former prime minister married Bushra Bibi in Lahore.

Only the bride’s mother and other close relatives and friends were present for the ceremony. The sisters of the PTI founder, however, were not present.

Former SAPM Zulfi Bukhari and Awn Chaudhary, leaders of the Pakitan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), were present when Mufti Saeed conducted the nikah.

Bibi’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka had petitioned the court last year, arguing that the marriage was unlawful and in violation of Sharia law.

Excuses from Adiala Jail to let Imran’s spouse Bushra due to security concerns

Published

Bushra Bibi’s appeal was heard by Justice Mian Gul Hasan Aurangzeb; however, the Adiala Jail administration denied Bushra Bibi’s request to be transferred to the jail on Thursday. Superintendent Adiala Jail filed his report with the court.

Bushra Bibi’s attorney, Usman Gul, arrived in court.

The jail supervisor stated that there is not enough room for extra female inmates at the jail—250 women are now incarcerated—and that Bushra Bibi cannot be sent there for security concerns.

The Chief Commissioner of Islamabad has not yet responded.

To give time to respond, the prosecutor asked for it. The plea was accepted by the court, and the hearing was postponed for two weeks.

Bushra Bibi, the spouse of Maulvi Khan, was taken into custody by the women’s police from Adiala jail after she made a request over the Toshkahana reference case.

In December 2023, Bushra Bibi, the wife of former prime minister Imran Khan, received a final call-up notice from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) requiring her to appear before the Rawalpindi office in Islamabad on December 11 in relation to the Toshakhana case.

According to the notice, Bushra Bibi accepted presents from foreign dignitaries totaling millions of rupees while Imran Khan was prime minister, going against the protocol that is in place for managing such gifts.

She maintained two rings, a set of bracelets, a pair of earrings, and a locket with chain in 2019, according to NAB.

She kept a ring, earrings, bracelet, necklace, and ring in 2020.

She reportedly disregarded the legal need to deposit a wristwatch, earrings, rings, and a necklace with chain that she got in 2021 in the Toshakhana.

Along with the previously stated materials, the anti-graft committee has asked Bushra Bibi to come before them in order to address any queries and offer clarifications on the subject.

The Intelligence Bureau was divided into a division with the agreement of the acting prime minister. This move was made to streamline the bureau’s financial and administrative operations.
