Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has challenged his indictment in the cipher case in the Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday.
The former prime minister approached the SC through his counsel Hamid Khan, urging the top court to declare illegal the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision to withhold the indictment.
He had previously argued his case before the Supreme Court, claiming that he was being unfairly targeted for political reasons. The former prime minister further asserted that government machinery is being used to fabricate false charges against him.
This is the second petition the PTI chief has filed in the Supreme Court related to the cipher case.
Last week, Imran Khan submitted a request to the Supreme Court for post-arrest bail in the cipher case.
Imran and party’s vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi are currently in Adiala jail.
