Imran Khan's victory notifications halted over violations case

Khan, whose center-right Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is set to form the government for the next five years in the wake of last month's controversial elections, found himself in hot water after he was found guilty of violating ballot secrecy on July 25. On August 3, the NAB asked Khan to appear before it for questioning.

Imran Khan has 15 days to submit his response to the questionnaire. His counsel Babar Awan presented some documents to the investigation team in support of the contentions of Imran Khan. The questionnaire needs to be completed within 15 days, according to the NAB officials.

The PTI chief was accompanied by former chief minister Pervez Khattak, outgoing speaker of the KP Assembly Asad Qaiser and MNA-elect Ali Haider Zaidi.

The case against Khan was filed after Geo News, in a report, claimed that the former KP government, headed by PTI's Pervez Khattak, spent a whopping amount on Khan's travel at the government's expense.

115 injured in clashes as Bangla teen protests turn violent
Dhaka remained largely cut off from the rest of Bangladesh as buses continued to stop plying from other parts of the country. Recent months have also seen mass protests against a decades-old system of discriminatory civil service recruitment.

The NAB wants to question Khan as part of the preliminary probe into allegations that the cricketer-turned-politician caused Rs 2.17 million loss to the provincial exchequer by using the provincial government's helicopter for over 72 hours.

The PTI chief had been summoned by the accountability body on July 18, but had sought more time to appear due to his busy schedule for campaigning for the general election.

NAB had claimed that had Mr Khan used a private company's choppers, it would have cost him an hourly fare of between Rs1m and Rs1.2m for Mi-171, and between Rs0.5m and Rs0.6m for Ecureuil. Khan's PTI has swept polls in KP and will form an independent government in the province for the second time. These helicopters are properties of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.
