Following the arrest, Bushra Bibi was moved to Bani Gala, which was declared a sub-jail in a notification issued by Islamabad Chief Commissioner.
The legal troubles for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder intensified, as the court not only imposed rigorous imprisonment but also disqualified Khan from holding any public office for the next 10 years. Additionally, the couple was fined Rs1.573 billion as part of the judgment.
