Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his deputy Shah Mahmood Qureshi have been indicted by a court in an official secrets act case. The case is related to the alleged disclosure of a classified diplomatic cable.
Khan and Qureshi have denied the charges and have pleaded not guilty. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for October 27.
The indictment of Khan and Qureshi is a significant development in Pakistan’s political landscape. It is the first time that a former prime minister has been indicted on charges of violating the official secrets act.
The case is likely to further polarize Pakistan’s politics and could have a significant impact on the country’s upcoming general election.
It is important to note that the case is still ongoing and that Khan and Qureshi are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
