Jail Authorities Poisoning My Food, Alleges Imran Khan’s Wife Bushra Bibi

Islamabad: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi has accused jail authorities of tampering with her food.

A lawyer representing Bushra Bibi claimed that consuming tampered food led to a deterioration in her health.

Bushra Bibi and Imran were convicted and sentenced in the Toshakhana case earlier this month.

Since then, Bushra Bibi is in confinement at her residence, which has been designated as a sub-jail.

World Cup-winning captain Imran, on the other hand, faces a number of cases and is currently lodged at Adiala Jail.

In a statement, Bushra Bibi’s lawyer and spokesperson Mashal Yousafzai said alleged that the former first lady had health issues after consuming a meal that was “unusually spicy”.

He added that Bushra Bibi disclosed to her that an acidic chemical substance was deliberately added to the food by jail authorities.

“She has developed blisters in her mouth and throat post consuming that meal and has been very unwell. She wants to inform the nation about this malicious act and its intended harm,” it was claimed.

Imran and Bushra Bibi were sentenced to 14 years in jail in the Toshakhana case, which relates to illegal sale of state gifts that the former had retained when he was Prime Minister. Two days later, the duo was handed an additional seven-year sentence for contracting marriage during ‘Iddat’ (period of waiting).
