FIA summons Azam Khan in cypher probe


The Federal Investigation Agency has summoned former prime minister Imran Khan’s principal secretary, Azam Khan, in relation to an investigation into the audio leaks of the alleged conspiracy cypher.

Azam has been asked to appear at the FIA’s office on October 25 at 1pm.

The corruption watchdog is investigating the audio leaks allegedly featuring Imran Khan and other PTI leaders in a discussion about a US cypher on the orders of the federal cabinet.

The PTI chairman Imran Khan, Asad Umar, and then-principal secretary Azam were allegedly heard discussing the US cypher and how to use it in their interest, in the two audio leaks that surfaced recently.

In the first audio leak that emerged last month, Imran was heard directing Azam to “just play” with the cypher, and responding to this, the latter advised the ex-premier that they can fake the minutes of a meeting with Qureshi and foreign secretary Sohail Mehmood to bring the cypher on record.
