Imran Khan of being part of a conspiracy
to discredit Pakistan and Pakistan’s
political leadership, Samaa TV reported.

surfacing in the Toshakhana Reference.

people like Shehzad Akbar should be ashamed at what they have done,” he said with reference to the publication of a “fabricated” story in British tabloid, “The Daily Mail”.

cases lodged against them which were fought legally, spent time in jail and eventually went into self-exile.
“At one point in time, there was a case of hijacking against me as well, for which there was no evidence.”
