ISLAMABAD: The vice-chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Shah Mehmood Qureshi filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the apex court’s bail rejection decision in the cipher case. The PTI leader filed bail plea through his lawyer Barrister Ali Bukhari.

He argued that proceedings against Mr Qureshi were unlawful, as no order was made or notification issued with respect to his jail trial.

Meanwhile, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) extended for a day (November 21) the stay against the jail trial of the former prime minister in the cipher case. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman is currently detained in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi on judicial remand. A two-member Justice Gul Hassan Aurangzeb and Justice Saman Rafat bench heard arguments. During today’s hearing, the court approved an extension in the stay order on the request of Imran Khan’s lawyer Salman Akram Raja until Tuesday, November 21.
