Earlier in July, Qureshi and Umar also appeared before FIA’s JIT investigating cypher. It is said that the recent arrest is amid cypher case.

The JIT is carrying out the investigation on the direction of the former cabinet which alleges that former prime minister Imran Khan, his associates including Qureshi and his former principal secretary prejudiced the national security and interest of the state by directly revealing classified information—a diplomatic cypher—without proper authorization.

It also accuses them of misuse and unauthorized retention of the cipher telegram.

On March 27, 2022, ahead of a vote of no-trust that resulted in his ouster, Imran Khan had pulled out a piece of paper from his pocket and waved it at the crowd attending a massive public meeting in Islamabad, claiming it was evidence of an “international conspiracy” being hatched to topple his government.
