The police have increased security around Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, where former prime minister Imran Khan is being held. This comes after a survey of the jail by the Special Branch and relevant departments. The survey recommended increased security and search operations targeting shops and residential areas near the jail. To ensure foolproof measures, police pickets have been set up on Adiala Road and around the jail premises. Elite commandos will also patrol the area in two shifts. It was also decided that the jail administration would be responsible for the security inside the jail, while the police would handle security outside. Imran Khan was transferred to Adiala Jail from District Jail Attock following a court order. He had been sentenced to three years in prison in the Toshakhana case but his sentence was suspended. He was then detained in the cipher case, which relates to a missing diplomatic document. Imran Khan is currently on judicial remand until October 10. He has also filed a plea seeking post-arrest bail in the cipher case. The court had rejected a request for in-camera proceedings for his bail plea.
