Meanwhile, the Pakistani government led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has decided to do a forensic examination of the statements of assets and income of ousted premier Imran Khan
The cricketer-turned-politician won the general election in 2018 promising to eradicate corruption from Pakistan. His government filed several corruption cases against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his younger brother and current Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
The Sharifs have claimed that the corruption cases against them were politically motivated.
On April 10, Imran Khan became the first Prime Minister of Pakistan to lose a no-trust vote in the National Assembly.
