An accountability court in Pakistan on Tuesday indicted jailed former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi in the 190 million pounds Al Qadir corruption case. Judge Nasir Javed Rana conducted the hearing at Rawalpindi’s high-security Adiala jail where the 72-year-old Pakistan-Tehreek-Insaf founder is currently incarcerated in multiple cases.

The judge read the chargesheet in Khan and Bushra’s presence in the courtroom. During the hearing, the court said that statements of 58 witnesses will be recorded in the case, Geo News reported. The judge asked Khan if he was guilty or not while framing charges against him. “Why should I read the charge sheet when I know what’s written in it?” Khan replied. Both Khan and his wife then denied the charges against them. The hearing was adjourned till March 6.
