It’s noteworthy that Bushra Bibi, Imran Khan’s wife, is serving her jail sentence in Bani Gala. The residence has been referred to as a jail for her after she was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the illegal nikkah case.
Imran Khan has been in Adiala jail since August of last year, facing a cumulative sentence of 31 years in three different cases. Trial courts have sentenced him to 14 years imprisonment in the Toshakhana case, 10 years in the cipher case, and seven years in the illegal nikkah case. He is also confronting several other cases, including those related to the May 9 incidents.
