ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan owns assets worth more than Rs38.6 million. 

Moreover, the PTI chief earned Rs4,776,611 last year, as per the record submitted to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

The documents reveal details of Imran’s earnings from agriculture, salary and bank profits.

The cricketer-turned-politician paid Rs303,763 in taxes last year. He does not own a vehicle.

According to the documents, Imran does not own any businesses in Pakistan or abroad.

The PTI chairman, however, owns 14 properties across Pakistan and none abroad. 

The documents mentioned Imran's Zaman Park residence in Lahore as inherited property.

The cricketer-turned-politician owns a residential property in Bani Gala worth Rs11,471,000.

Imran owns another 6 kanal and 16 marla land in village Mohra Noor in Bani Gala, Islamabad, which is worth Rs5,050,000. He has also paid Rs11,970,000 for a flat in Islamabad.

The PTI chief has another 243 kanal and 6 marla land in Bhakkar, which is worth Rs4,200,000.

The PTI chief has also submitted details of his foreign trips along with his nomination papers to the ECP. 

This year, Imran only travelled to the United Kingdom. The three-day trip costs Rs240,000, according to the documents.

Imran's wife, Bushra Bibi, and his two sons with Jemima Khan — Qasim and Sulaiman — have been listed as his dependents. 

The documents state that Bushra Bibi's assets have not been included as their marriage took place in 2018. Similarly, Imran's sons have been shown as "not financially dependent".

A returning officer (RO) on Tuesday rejected Imran's nomination papers for NA-53 for failing to properly fill out the affidavit attached with the nomination papers.

The PTI chief's candidacy was also rejected from NA-95 (Mianwali).

However, Imran's nomination papers were accepted from NA-35 (Bannu), NA-131 (Lahore) and NA-243 (Karachi).

Note: An earlier version of this story had misreported Imran Khan’s assets at Rs3.8 million. The error is regretted.
