Khan had led the legal drive that led to Sharif being disqualified in July over unreported income and the opening of a criminal corruption case against the former prime minister. Bani Gala is Khan's property and he bought the land for his family, the CJP announced.

The top court further said Khan was not required to disclose accounts of his off-shore company as he was neither director nor shareholder of the firm.

The petitions, filed by Abbasi in November 2016, accused the two PTI leaders of not fully declaring their assets to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and sought their disqualification based on alleged violations of the lncome Tax Ordinance 1979 and Representation of Peoples Act 1974.
