The Toshakhana reference filed by the NAB alleged that Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi retained the Graff Jewelry set gifted by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia without due assessment. The reference claimed that they violated Toshakhana procedures by not depositing the gift for transparent assessment and unduly influenced appraisers to undervalue the gift. The court found that the assessments were significantly undervalued, leading to the illegal retention of the jewelry set.
