Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan has been sentenced to three years imprisonment and disqualified from politics for five years.

A Pakistani trial court on Saturday sentenced former prime minister Imran Khan to three years in prison for illegally selling state gifts, also known as the Toshakhana corruption case and disqualified him from politics for five years.

Legal experts said a conviction in the case could end Khan’s chances of participating in national elections that have to be held before early November.
