Former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has been sent on a 14-day judicial remand in the cipher case by a special court in Islamabad. The court, established to hear cases under the Official Secrets Act, rejected a request from the prosecutor to grant further physical remand of the PTI leader. Qureshi was then sent back to Adiala Jail on a 14-day judicial remand. The case revolves around the alleged misuse of contents from a diplomatic cipher, which former premier Imran Khan used as evidence of an attempt to remove his government. In a separate hearing, the special court extended Imran Khan’s judicial remand in the cipher case until September 13. The case against Imran and Qureshi was registered under the Official Secrets Act for communicating classified information to unauthorized individuals. The FIR states that the information was shared with the public by twisting the facts for personal gain and in a manner detrimental to state security.
