One Rolex Platinum watch gifted by a member of a royal family from a Gulf island was sold by Imran Khan for Rs5.2 million

Former prime minister Imran Khan sold three watches from Toshakhana collectively worth more than Rs154 million to a local watch dealer, The News has learnt.

Details of an official inquiry shared with this correspondent reflect Imran Khan earned millions of rupees from these jewel-class watches gifted to him by foreign dignitaries. These watches are in addition to the ones reported earlier in the media.

The most expensive watch — more than Rs101 million value — was retained by the-then prime minister at 20 percent of its value after his government amended the Toshakhana rules and settled the gift retention price at 50 percent of its original value.

Instead of buying those gifted jewel watches from Toshakhana from his own pocket, the ex-prime minister first sold the watches and then deposited 20 percent of each in the government treasury, reveals documents and sale receipts available with this scribe.

Apparently, these gifts were never deposited in Toshakhana. The gift received by any government official is to be reported immediately, so its value is assessed. And after that the recipient deposits specific amount if he wants to keep it.

Toshakhana documents reveal the former prime minister earned Rs36 million from the sale of these three expensive watches gifted by visiting dignitaries from friendly Gulf countries. A real windfall profit was earned through sale of a watch gifted to him by a high dignitary from Middle East. This watch was officially assessed at Rs101 million. Former prime minister had declared he sold it for Rs51 million and deposited Rs20 million in the government treasury, thus earning a whopping Rs31 million. This reflects the watch was sold at half the price of its actual worth.

It is pertinent to mention here that this watch was sold on January 22, 2019 after the-then PTI government amended the Toshakhana rules and made retaining price of any gift at 50 percent from 20 percent of its assessed value.

One Rolex Platinum watch gifted by a member of a royal family from a Gulf island was sold by Imran Khan for Rs5.2 million. This expensive gift, as per the Toshakhana rules, was assessed by official evaluators for Rs3.8 million. He deposited in the government treasury 20pc of the value amounting to Rs0.75 million, earning almost Rs4.5 million profit by selling this watch. This watch was sold in November 2018, two months after it was gifted to him.

Another Rolex watch gifted by a dignitary from the same Gulf island was sold by the former prime minister for Rs1.8 million. The official value assessed for this watch was Rs1.5 million. The former PM paid Rs0.29 million, earning another profit of Rs1.5 million from this deal.

All these gifts were sold to a local watch dealer. The record has the sale receipts along with pictures of these luxury watches. This scribe contacted PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Shahbaz Gill through calls and messages to take their view regarding the matter, but none of them responded. The question which The News asked from Fawad Chaudhry and Shahbaz Gill was, "Dear sir, it has been learned that being PM Imran Khan sold three additional luxury watches to a watch dealer in F-7, Islamabad. I have a few queries regarding the matter. If you please spare some time and answer them.

1) Imran Khan retained one watch at 20 percent of its assessed value when his government had amended the retaining price at 50 percent of the original value of the gift. This watch was retained on January 2019 after your government amended the Toshakhana rules in December 2018. Please comment and explain why rules were not followed?

2) Imran Khan did not deposit these three watches in Toshakhana and deposited money on the day he sold them. Why he kept the gifts to himself? Please comment. Your immediate response will be highly appreciated and regarded.

Responding to the Toshakana controversy, former prime minister Imran Khan had said they were his gifts, so it was his choice whether to keep them or not. "Mera tohfa, meri marzi (my gift, my choice)," the PTI chairman told reporters during an informal conversation.

The issue came to light when Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said Imran Khan, during his tenure, sold the Toshakhana gifts in Dubai worth Rs140 million. According to reports, the former premier received 58 gifts worth more than Rs140 million from the world leaders during his three-and-a-half-year stint and retained all of them either by paying a negligible amount or even without any payment.

Former information minister Fawad Chaudhry had also stated that “selling one’s own assets (after purchasing them from Toshakhana) is not a crime”. “These gifts were purchased by Imran Khan and (after he became their owner) he can sell his assets. So there is nothing wrong with it,” he had claimed.

IK should come out and give an explanation for this news, and if the story is false should take this journalist and his media house to court.

Actually I think the state should prosecute him if they have evidence of criminal wrong doing.

Let's say the story isn't false, then what?

Was a crime committed?

Idhr 16 billion kay documentary proof wala PM betha hai, aur idhr yeh log IK say 'moral case' par jawab mang rahay hain.

Anyways, good...pakro IK ko, dalo jail main agr kuch ghalat kia hai, maro usay.

BTW, anyone has his tax returns or asset returns pre and post sale of watches?

That would really tell what he did with the money from the watches, did he actually uplift Bani Gala from the money, as he says or not

Oh also, wasn't the initial narrative that he sold it to a Dubai dealer, and then it changed to Farah Gogi? Dubai say ab F7 agaye ho?

Ohh so where is corruption in that Patwari? A gift he got for free was sold. So what?

No he shouldn't. Instead Patwari journalists should help their Patwari govt file real corruption cases against ex PM

if he is culprit, rather than ranting at media people in power should bring him to justice and if it is not a crime which apparently it looks like... then they should keep silent and work hard to deal with main challenges like inflation and economy but before that agencies should arrest the big fishes who launder money and all evidences are there yet for them selling a watch is right now the real issue and rest of crimes are not

Yes, in Patwari universe Imran Khan committed high treason for selling a gift he got for free

This, not condoning any kind of corruption but people getting hang over 3 watchs vs the billions robbed over 2 decades have got all their priorities wrong.
This is the low level of Patwari journalism and defense of corruption of their favorite leaders

Why not take Imran Khan to the court and let NAB does the investigation since you have got a proof. Am sure he is going to be get convicted and may be hang for the human right violations for keeping the watches in his pocket. Are you taking him to the court or just these are empty words?

He paid toshakhana so whats wrong? That too the assessment of price are kept real. Bonga and zardari had a rule to pay 7.5℅ and later 15℅ and guess what, the gifts were undervalued in records so they had to pay pennies for millions worth gifts.

This is the low level of Patwari journalism
Another one for you, read this one carefully. :D
ہ فیصلہ مشکل ہوتا جا رہا ہے عمران خان زیادہ ناکام ہیں یا اتحادی حکومت لیکن یہ بہرحال طے ہے عمران خان سے تحریک نہیں چل رہی اور حکومت سے معیشت لہٰذا اس وقت دونوں ناکام نظر آ رہے ہیں۔

ہم سب سے پہلے عمران خان کے المیے کی طرف آتے ہیں، عمران خان ایٹمی پروگرام کے بعد پاکستانی اسٹیبلشمنٹ کا سب سے بڑا پروجیکٹ تھا، اسٹیبلشمنٹ نے جس طرح ایٹمی پروگرام کے لیے دن رات ایک کر دیا، اپنی ہر چیز، اپنا ہر اثاثہ داؤ پر لگا دیا بالکل اسی طرح عمران خان کو بھی اقتدار میں لانے کے لیے کوئی کسر نہیں چھوڑی گئی، ریاست کے سارے داؤ، ساری طاقتیں اور سارے کلیے استعمال کر دیے گئے یہاں تک کہ وہ تمام سیاست دان بھی قربان کر دیے گئے جو ریاست نے زیور کی طرح مشکل وقت کے لیے بچا کر رکھے ہوئے تھے۔

چین، سعودی عرب، ترکی اور امریکا کے ساتھ اپنے دیرینہ تعلقات تک قربان کر دیے گئے اور عمران خان کے لیے عدلیہ کو عدلیہ، میڈیا کو میڈیا اور صنعت کاروں کو صنعت کار بھی نہیں رہنے دیا گیا اور یوں دانتوں تک پسینے کے بعد عمران خان اقتدار میں پہنچ گئے مگر اس کے بعد کیا ہوا؟ یہ کہانی اب کہانی نہیں رہی، عمران خان کے پونے چار سال کے اقتدار نے ملک کی چولیں ہلا کر رکھ دیں، پنجاب 12 کروڑ لوگوں کا صوبہ ہے۔


یہ صوبہ اس عثمان بزدار کے حوالے کر دیا گیا جس کی اہلیت صوبے دار سے زیادہ نہیں تھی اور اس نے ان پونے چار برسوں میں پنجابی تاریخ کے "بھنگی دور" کو بھی پیچھے چھوڑ دیا، آپ یہ سن اور جان کر حیران رہ جاتے ہیں عثمان بزدار کو غیرقانونی کاموں کی چٹیں اور احکامات جلانے میں تین دن لگ گئے تھے، وہ تمام افسر اور ہاؤسنگ اسکیموں کے مالکان اپنے بیانات ریکارڈ کرا چکے ہیں جنھوں نے رقم، ہار اور انگوٹھیاں دے کر پوسٹنگز اور ٹرانسفرزکرائی تھیں یا این او سی لیے تھے، نوا سٹی کا مالک جنید چوہدری اب اپنے معاملات ٹھیک کرنے کے لیے وزیراعظم ہاؤس کے چکر کاٹ رہا ہے۔

فرح گوگی کے تحائف اور یہ جس جس نے خریدے وہ فہرست بھی بن چکی ہے اور وزراء کی ٹیلی فون کالز، اعترافات اور لین دین کا تمام کچا چٹھا بھی اکٹھا ہو چکا ہے بس وڈیوز اور آڈیوز کی ریلیز باقی ہے اور یہ کام جس دن ہو گیا عوام اس دن حمود الرحمن کمیشن رپورٹ کو بھول جائیں گے، عمران خان کے اقتدار میں آنے کے بعد اسٹیبلشمنٹ کا کام ختم ہو جانا چاہیے تھا لیکن ان پر بوجھ مزید بڑھ گیا، آئی ایم ایف کے ساتھ مذاکرات ہوں، تاجروں اور صنعت کاروں کو مطمئن کرنا ہو، چین، سعودی عرب اور یو اے ای سے امداد لینی ہو، امریکا کو راضی رکھنا ہو، کورونا ویکسین جمع کرنی ہو، عوام کو ویکسین لگوانی ہو، چیئرمین نیب کو بچانا ہو، بجٹ پاس کرانے ہوں۔

علیم خان اور جہانگیر ترین کو خاموش کرانا ہو، پارٹی کو ٹوٹنے سے بچانا ہو، اتحادیوں کو حکومت کے ساتھ لٹکائے رکھنا ہو، میاں نواز شریف اور آصف علی زرداری کو خاموش کرانا ہو، مولانا فضل الرحمن کو اسلام آباد سے واپس بھجوانا ہو، ایران اور افغانستان کے ساتھ بات چیت کرنی ہو، کشمیر میں کرفیو کے خلاف آواز اٹھانی ہو یا پھر حکومت کے لیے وزیر خزانہ کا بندوبست کرنا ہو یہ سب اسٹیبلشمنٹ کی ذمے داری تھی جب کہ عمران خان صرف ایک کام کر رہے تھے، فلاں کو اٹھا لیں، فلاں کو اندر بند کر دیں اور فلاں کی ضمانت نہ ہونے دیں۔


وزیراعظم نے ڈی جی ایف آئی اے بشیر میمن کو دفتر میں بلا کر خواجہ آصف کے خلاف غداری کا مقدمہ بنانے کا حکم دے دیا تھا اور رانا ثناء اللہ پر 15 کلو ہیروئن ڈال کر انھیں چھ ماہ کے لیے جیل میں بند کر دیا گیا تھااور سید خورشید شاہ دو سال ایک ماہ جیلوں میں بند رہے، یہ سلسلہ جیسے تیسے پونے چار سال چلتا رہا لیکن جب عمران خان نے ان نوازشات کو اپنا حق اور ریاست کی مجبوری سمجھنا شروع کر دیا، یہ برملا کہنے لگے "میرے علاوہ ان کے پاس کوئی آپشن نہیں " اور اس کے ساتھ ہی اگلے دس سال کی پلاننگ کر لی، اگلے آرمی چیف کا فیصلہ بھی کر لیا۔

سو ریٹائرڈ ججوں کو بھرتی کر کے نیب کورٹس بنانے اور کرپشن کے الزامات میں ملوث تمام لوگوں کو ڈس کوالی فائی کرنے، صدارتی نظام لانے اور اپنے دس سال کے اقتدار کے بعد ملک میں آمریت نافذ کرنے کا فیصلہ کرلیا تو ریاست کی بس ہو گئی اور اس نے اپنی غلطی سدھارنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا، باقی حالات آپ کے سامنے ہیں۔

عدم اعتماد کے بعد عمران خان کے پاس چار باعزت آپشن تھے، یہ استعفیٰ دیتے اور ملکی تاریخ کے مضبوط ترین اپوزیشن لیڈر کا کردار ادا کرتے، یہ اگر یہ راستہ اختیار کرتے تو آج ان کا سیاسی قد مینار پاکستان سے بھی اونچا ہو چکا ہوتا، دوسرا یہ پنجاب اور کے پی کی اسمبلیاں توڑ دیتے اور ملک نئے الیکشنز کی طرف چلا جاتا لیکن عمران خان نے کم از کم ایک صوبے کے وسائل اپنے ہاتھ میں رکھنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا، تیسرا یہ حکومت کے ساتھ بیٹھتے، انتخابی اصلاحات کرتے اور اگلے الیکشن کی تیاریاں شروع کر دیتے اور چوتھا یہ اقتدار سے نکلنے کے باوجود اسٹیبلشمنٹ کے ساتھ تعلقات قائم رکھتے اور یہ آج تین ماہ بعد ایک بار پھر وزیراعظم ہوتے۔


عمران خان اگر ان چار میں سے کوئی ایک راستہ بھی اختیار کر لیتے تو یہ آج بنی گالا میں محصورنہ ہوتے اور یہ ہر کھانے کی چیز کو مشکوک نظروں سے نہ دیکھ رہے ہوتے لیکن عمران خان کی افتاد طبع انھیں بند گلی میں لے آئی اور یہ اب تیزی سے اکیلے ہوتے جا رہے ہیں اور دیکھنے والے ان کے ہاتھ سے تسبیح اور انگلی سے انگوٹھی اترنے کا انتظار کر رہے ہیں، کیوں؟ کیوں کہ عمران خان کو جاننے والے جانتے ہیں اب عثمان بزدار، فرح گوگی، احسن جمیل اور مانیکا فیملی کی باری ہے، خان صاحب اپنی بربادی کا ملبہ کسی بھی وقت ان پر گرا کر ان سے اپنی جان چھڑائیں گے اور نئی تحریک انصاف کی بنیاد رکھ دیں گے، یہ آگے چل پڑیں گے۔

ہم اب حکومت کی طرف آتے ہیں، میاں شہباز شریف بلاشبہ پاکستانی تاریخ کے کام یاب ترین وزیراعلیٰ تھے، پوری قوم کو ان سے بے تحاشا توقعات تھیں، وزیراعظم بننے کے بعد اسٹاک ایکسچینج اور ڈالر دونوں نے انھیں سلامی بھی دی لیکن شاید ان کے ہاتھ بندھے ہوئے ہیں یا ملکی مسائل ان کی توقع سے زیادہ ہیں لہٰذا یہ اب تک پرفارم نہیں کر سکے اوریوں ریاست اور قوم دونوں حیرت سے ان کی طرف دیکھ رہے ہیں۔

حکومت کا پہلا غلط فیصلہ مفتاح اسماعیل کو وزیر خزانہ بنانا تھا، مفتاح اسماعیل ایک غیرسنجیدہ انسان ہیں، یہ بڑے سے بڑا ظالمانہ فیصلہ بھی ہنستے ہنستے سناتے ہیں اور یہ ان کے عہدے کے شایان شان نہیں، یہ صنعت کار بھی ہیں اور صنعت کاروں کو روپے کی ڈی ویلیویشن سے ہمیشہ فائدہ ہوتا ہے چناں چہ یہ ڈالر کنٹرول نہ کر سکے یا انھوں نے ملک میں جان بوجھ کر معاشی ایمرجنسی بھی پیدا کر دی تاکہ انھیں فوری طور پر نہ ہٹایا جا سکے، حکومت اگر اسحاق ڈار کو واپس لے آتی یا یہ شوکت ترین کو کام جاری رکھنے کا موقع دے دیتی تو آج صورت حال بالکل مختلف ہوتی، ہمیں یہ ماننا ہو گا اسحاق ڈار اور شوکت ترین دونوں معیشت کو زیادہ بہتر سمجھتے ہیں چناں چہ دونوں کے دور میں معیشت بہتر ہوئی تھی جب کہ مفتاح اسماعیل نے اپنے دونوں ادوار میں بیڑہ غرق کر دیا۔

لہٰذا آج مفتاح اسماعیل ن لیگ کی مقبولیت کو تابوت بنا کر اس میں کیل ٹھونکتے چلے جا رہے ہیں اور مجھے یقین ہے اگر اسحاق ڈار واپس نہ آئے تو مفتاح اسماعیل اپنی جہد مسلسل سے ن لیگ کو الیکشن کے قابل نہیں چھوڑیں گے، دوسرا حکومت شروع میں بری طرح کنفیوز تھی، یہ پورا مہینہ یہ سوچتی رہی ہمارے ساتھ ہاتھ ہو گیا ہے، عمران خان کو گرین چٹ دے کر نکال لیا گیا ہے اور باقی تمام پارٹیوں کو گرتی ہوئی چٹان کے نیچے کھڑا کر دیا گیا ہے چناں چہ ہمیں پٹرول کی قیمتیں نہیں بڑھانی چاہییں اور جلد سے جلد الیکشنز کرا دینے چاہییں لیکن عمران خان نے جب میر صادق اور میر جعفر کی گردان شروع کی تو حکومت کی سانس میں سانس آئی مگر یہ اس کے باوجود 25مئی تک استعفیٰ دے کر الیکشن میں جانے کا فیصلہ بھی کرتے رہے۔

اس دوران یہ فیصلہ بھی ہو گیا وزیراعظم 27 مئی کو مستعفی ہو جائیں گے، اسمبلی ٹوٹ جائے گی اور یوں اکتوبر میں الیکشن ہو جائیں گے لیکن عمران خان غلطی کر گئے، انھوں نے 25 مئی کے لانگ مارچ کا اعلان کر دیا، اس کے نتیجے میں حکومت ڈٹ گئی اور اس نے لڑنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا لہٰذا ہم کہہ سکتے ہیں میاں شہباز شریف کی حکومت عملاً 25 مئی کو شروع ہوئی اور یہ اگلے سال 25مئی تک قائم رہے گی، یہ جب تک معیشت کو الیکشن کے قابل نہیں بناتی یہ اس وقت تک قائم رہے گی، ملک ایف اے ٹی ایف کی وائٹ لسٹ میں آ رہا ہے۔

آئی ایم ایف بھی اپنا وزیر خزانہ لانے کے بعد اپنا پیکیج بحال کر دے گا، حکومت کو اس کے بعد چین اور سعودی عرب سے بھی امداد مل جائے گی اور انھیں قطر بھی تین بلین ڈالر کی ادھار ایل این جی اور 2 بلین ڈالر دے دے گا جس کے بعد ڈالر ایک سو نوے روپے سے نیچے آ جائے گا اورکسی حد تک مہنگائی کنٹرول ہو جائے گی، روس اور یوکرین کی جنگ نہ رکی تو حکومت امریکا کو راضی کر کے ایران سے سستا پٹرول بھی حاصل کر لے گی اور یوں حالات سنبھل جائیں گے لیکن یہ تمام چیزیں صرف دو چیزوں پر بیس کرتی ہیں۔

ایک شریف فیملی کو پنجاب کا اقتدار اپنے خاندان سے باہر کسی دوسرے کے حوالے کرنا ہو گا اور شہباز شریف کو آزادی سے فیصلے کرنے کی اجازت دینا ہو گی ورنہ دوسری صورت میں حالات ان کے ہاتھ سے بھی نکل جائیں گے، ملک میں ایمرجنسی نافذ کرنے کے علاوہ کوئی آپشن نہیں بچے گااور اس کے بعد سیاست پر پابندی لگ جائے گی۔

ملک میں آنے والے دن کیسے ہوں گے؟ میں نہیں جانتا تاہم یہ دیوار پر لکھا ہے ہم سوئی کی نوک پر اٹکے ہوئے ہیں، ہماری ایک غلطی، ہماری مزید ایک حماقت ہمیں کھائی میں گرا دے گی لہٰذا اب تو عقل استعمال کر لیں، اب تو گنجائش بھی نہیں بچی۔

He paid the required 20% value and is legally allowed to own it. What he does with it after is his own business accoring to the law.

It could possibly be a question of ethics, but only if the watch was gifted to the government of Pakistan rather than IK personally. But this seems more like a personal gift to IK given that its from a wealthy family rather than a state official?

Still nothing compared to our former PM's like Gilani literally stealing the necklace of the Turkish presidents wife, Zardari pocketing 10% of every single transaction, and Nawaz using state finances to buy property in London.
