Islamabad (Pakistan) – Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been acquitted of leaking state secrets but will remain in jail because of a conviction in another case. Imran Khan and Shah Mahmood Qureshi were found guilty in this case last year. A special court had sentenced him to 10 years imprisonment on charges of violating the secrecy laws of the country. The sentence was challenged by Imran Khan and Shah Mahmood Qureshi in the Islamabad High Court.

Khan was convicted in what is popularly known as the cipher case, in which he was accused of exposing state secrets by waving a confidential document at a rally.
