Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has confessed to “losing” the cipher and being unable to recall where he had kept it during his interrogation in Attock Jail, according to a report. Responding to questions by a three-member team of the Cybercrime Circle of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), led by deputy director Ayyaz Khan, Imran Khan cooperated with the team, as reported by The News International.
During the questioning, Imran Khan denied that the paper he gestured with in a public gathering was the cipher. He claimed that it was actually cabinet meeting minutes and stated that as the Prime Minister of the country, it was his right to keep such documents with him. However, he could not provide an explanation for why he claimed it to be the cipher in public.
Imran Khan has also challenged the rejection of his nine bail applications in the Islamabad High Court. After his bail pleas were denied in cases related to incidents including the May 9 violence, he submitted nine applications through his lawyer, Salman Safdar. Six of these applications were turned down by a sessions court, while three were rejected by an anti-terrorism court (ATC). Imran Khan had previously approached the country’s Supreme Court with a petition against Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Aamer Farooq.
Imran Khan is currently serving a three-year prison sentence in Attock jail after being found guilty in connection with the Toshakhana case. The trial court in Islamabad also imposed a fine of 100,000 Pakistani Rupees on him for concealing proceeds of state depository gifts received from foreign dignitaries during his tenure as Prime Minister from 2018 to 2022.
