PTI leader Asad Umar has been given pre-arrest bail in the missing cipher case till Aug 29!

The special court in Islamabad on Tuesday approved Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Umar’s eight-day bail in the missing cipher case registered under Official Secrets Act.

The special court was formed on Monday to hear cases filed under the Official Secrets Act.

As reported, the special court accepted the PTI leader’s bail plea as he was willing to cooperate fully in the investigations.

The court admitted the application and granted Umar bail till August 29, while directing him to submit a surety bond of Rs100,000 against the bail.

However, Asad Umar talking to reporters after appearing before the court denied the reports of being arrested.

The former federal minister said that the FIA had not arrested him.

He said that he has joined the probe on the matter of cipher twice.

He added that the PTI leaders facing the allegations, in this case, will be vindicated.

The former federal minister filed a pre-arrest bail plea in the special court.

He maintained that the cipher case against him was filed for political victimization to “harass and blackmail” him.

The petition stated that the case against Umar was baseless and the sections included in the first information report (FIR) are wrong.
