Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa on Monday deposited an expensive pen gifted to him by the Muslim World League to the Toshakhana. 

The pen, named Bab-e-Kaaba, was gifted to the chief justice by the Muslim World League's Secretary Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, who met him last month. 

Muslim World League is an international non-governmental organisation  headquartered in Makkah with members from all Islamic countries and sects.

CJP Isa, after taking approval from Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the gift has put up in the Supreme Court of Pakistan museum. The CJP's secretary had written a letter to Cabinet Division's secretary in this regard. 

Established in 1974, Toshakhana — a Persian word meaning "treasure house" — is a department under the administrative control of the Cabinet Division and stores precious gifts given to rulers, parliamentarians, bureaucrats and officials by heads of other governments and states and foreign dignitaries as a goodwill gesture.

It has valuables ranging from bulletproof cars, gold-plated souvenirs and expensive paintings to watches, ornaments, rugs and swords.
