ISLAMABAD – The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday disqualified former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case.

Earlier, the ECP had reserved its verdict in this case and announced it today, saying Khan had been disqualified for making “false statements and incorrect declaration”.

Announcing the verdict, a five-member panel of the ECP said the PTI chairman had been disqualified under Article 63(1)(p) of the Constitution of Pakistan.

Soon after the ECP disqualified Khan, protests broke out across Pakistan against the verdict. In federal capital Islamabad, protesters in large numbers clashed with the police. Police fired tear-gas shells to disperse the protesters.

Elsewhere, protesters also took to streets in big cities like Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta.
