Pakistan: Imran Khan claims his wife was given food laced with ‘toilet cleaner’


NEW DELHI: Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan on Friday accused the jail authorities of mixing ‘toilet cleaner‘ into his wife’s food at her Banigala residence.
During the hearing of the £190 million corruption case in Rawalpindi‘s Adiala jail on Friday, PTI founder Imran Khan said that toilet cleaner had been mixed into Bushra Bibi‘s food which is causing health to deteriorate with daily stomach irritation.
He further said that Shaukat Khanum Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr Asim Yousaf had suggested carrying out Bushra Bibi’s tests at Shifa International Hospital. However, he added that the jail administration was adamant about carrying out the test at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital.
According to a report in Dawn, Bushra Bibi, filed a petition before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on April 15 and requested the court to conduct her check-up and medical tests from Shaukat Khanum Hospital or any other private hospital of her choice to examine if she was poisoned through contaminated food.
In her petition, Bushra Bibi said that she is suffering from heartburn, aches in throat and mouth and that she believes that it is the result of eating poisonous meals.
Imran Khan’s wife said that she was poisoned and subjected to psychological torture at her Banigala residence, which has been declared a sub-jail.
Moreover, she also alleged that spy cameras are installed at different places in the room where she has been confined. She said that there is only one lady deputed in the sub-jail while the rest of the staff is male and she feels discomfort in such an environment.
Meanwhile, The court advised Imran Khan to refrain from holding ‘press conferences’ during the hearings and suggested addressing the media after the hearing.
In his response, Khan said that the jail administration removes the media from the courtroom after the hearing and he only spoke to reporters to clarify his statements which were misquoted.
The PTI founder also urged the court to permit him a 10-minute interaction with reporters after the hearing.
