‘Imran Khan built a false narrative on cipher’, former Principal Secretary Azam Khan says cipher was used for ‘political gains

Azam Khan, ex-principal secretary to the PTI chairman and former prime minister, who had been ‘missing’ for a month, claimed that the former PM used US cipher for his ‘political gains’ and to avert a no-confidence motion against him. Khan made startling revelations about US cipher, while recording his statement under the CrPC 164 before a magistrate.

The former bureaucrat, in his confession, said when he provided the ex-premier with the cypher, he was “euphoric” and termed the language as a “US blunder”. The former minister then said, according to Azam, that the cable could be used for “creating a narrative against establishment and opposition”.

Azam Khan said the US cypher was used in political gatherings by the PTI chairman, despite advising him to avoid such acts.
