    Former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his spouse Bushra Bibi were indicted in the Iddat case by a Rawalpindi trial court on Tuesday. The charges against the couple were framed under Sections 34, 496, and 496B of the Pakistan Penal Code. The hearing was conducted at Adiala Jail, where Imran is currently incarcerated. The court reserved judgment on the bail requests of 24 people, including three PTI candidates and Rashid, a day earlier. Rashid secured bail in 11 other related cases, including the GHQ attack case, before being arrested.

    During the proceedings, Bushra Bibi left the hearing midway citing health reasons. The judge inquired if she had taken permission before leaving the hearing halfway through. Rashid’s lawyer, Advocate Sardar Abdul Razzaq, mentioned that bail was confirmed in two cases, with the decision for the remaining 10 cases expected shortly. Interim bail was anticipated for the remaining cases due to similar allegations and evidence. The court adjourned the hearing till January 18 and summoned witnesses at the upcoming proceedings.

    The Iddat case According to the complaint filed by Bushra Bibi’s ex-husband Khawar Farid Maneka, Imran and Bushra Bibi committed a heinous offense by having illicit relations with each other before marriage and contracting nikah during the iddat period, which contravenes the teachings of Islam. Maneka claimed that Imran’s close friend Zulfi Bukhari used to accompany him, even though he was never Bushra Bibi’s disciple. For instance, Bukhari also came to Maneka’s house alone.

    The petition stated that cell phones and SIMs were provided to Bushra Bibi by her friend, Farah Khan aka Farhat Shahzadi. Maneka accused Imran Khan of ruining his life and stigmatizing his entire family. He claimed that the former premier and Bushra Bibi committed a heinous offense by having illicit relations with each other before marriage and contracting nikah during the iddat period, which contravenes the teachings of Islam. The court has adjourned the hearing till January 18 and summoned witnesses at the upcoming proceedings.
