SRINAGAR: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for leaking state secrets, media reports said.

Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqernain of the Official Secrets Act special court presiding over the case delivered the verdict after conducting the proceedings at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan and Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi were handed a 10-year prison sentence in the cipher case by a special court in Pakistan on Tuesday.

The cipher case concerns a diplomatic cable, which reportedly went missing from Khan’s possession. Khan had repeatedly said before and after the no-confidence motion against him last year that the cipher pointed to a conspiracy to remove him from the prime minister’s office.
