A special court hearing cipher case against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi is likely to indict them tomorrow (Monday).

Special court Judge Abu Alhasnaat Zulqurnain will hold the hearing on the case inside Adiala jail in Rawalpindi.

The last hearing was held on October 17 for indicting Khan and Qureshi. However, the indictment was delayed as challan copies had not been distributed to the accused. Both politicians had refused to sign or receive the challans at the previous hearing. The hearing was then adjourned till October 23.

The case is registered under the Official Secrets Act and accuses Khan of divulging the contents of a classified cipher written by Pakistan’s ambassador in Washington.

According to sources, FIA’s challan accuses Khan of violating the law by keeping the cipher with him instead of returning him. A copy of the cipher has allegedly been ‘lost’.

The FIA reportedly submitted a list of 28 witnesses along with the challan. It also attached 161 statements from 27 of these witnesses.

Imran Khan has been in jail since August 5, when he was arrested minutes after being declared guilty of corrupt practices in the Toshakhana case.

Although he managed to get his jail sentence suspended on August 29, he could not be freed as he had already been arrested in the cipher case from jail.
