After a hearing in the cipher case in Adiala Jail, Prosecutor Shah Khawar told the media that the proceedings have been postponed till October 23. The suspects will be indicted at the next hearing.
PTI lawyer Sher Afzal Marwat told the media that they were not given the copies of the report at the last hearing because of which the indictment has been postponed.
