Pakistan’s anti-corruption watchdog, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), has issued a notice to Bushra Bibi, the third wife of Imran Khan, to appear before it in connection with a corruption case. Khan, who is the leader of the opposition and former prime minister, has pledged to overthrow the government through street protests. He and over 1,000 of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party leaders were booked on 26 March on charges of terrorism after his supporters clashed with security forces outside the Islamabad Judicial Complex. The violence followed a hearing in a case in which Khan is accused of buying discounted gifts he had received as premier from the state depository, Toshakhana, and selling them for a profit. The NAB has now summoned Bibi and Khan’s nephew in relation to the same case. The number of cases against Khan has risen to 97. His supporters have reportedly been arrested in various parts of the country, with at least 198 detained since the clashes erupted.
