Khan appeared before the National Accountability Bureau's office in Peshawar, where the agency gave him a list of questions, Dawn quoted the bureau's officials as saying.

Imran Khan is incidentally also the nephew of Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who was rumoured to have been invited to the oath-taking. Previously, the bureau had summoned the PTI leader on July 18, but due to his engagements in the election campaign, he had not turned up and instead requested that another date for his appearance may be fixed after the elections, preferably on Aug 7. The questionnaire needs to be completed within 15 days, according to the NAB officials.

Pakistan's election authority on Tuesday issued the final results of the July 25 elections but withheld the results of several winning candidates for various reasons, most notably Imran Khan, the presumed premier.

The case against Khan was filed after Geo News, in a report, claimed that the former KP government, headed by PTI's Pervez Khattak, spent a whopping amount on Khan's travel at the government's expense. However; if he had used a private company's choppers, it would have cost him an hourly charge of between Rs1million and Rs1.2 million for the Mi-17 and between Rs 0.5 million and Rs 0.6 million for the Ecureuil. Khan's PTI has swept polls in KP and will form an independent government in the province for the second time.
