In a series of arrests involving prominent Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders, former federal minister and PTI leader Asad Umar was apprehended from Islamabad. The arrest follows yesterday’s detainment of former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, also in Islamabad. Notably, PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who was previously arrested in connection with the Tosha Khana case, has now been taken into custody regarding a case related to a missing cipher.
Sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Asad Umar’s arrest is linked to the ongoing cipher case. The arrest comes amidst heightened attention on political figures and ongoing legal proceedings.
Meanwhile, officials from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) have transported PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who was taken into custody yesterday, to the District Court. The court proceedings, held behind closed doors, are currently underway.
The developments surrounding these high-profile arrests have drawn significant public interest, as observers await further details and updates on the cases involving the PTI leaders.
