ISLAMABAD – The federal cabinet has okayed starting a high-level inquiry, days after an audio leak allegedly of ousted Pakistani premier Imran Khan and his key aides surfaced in which the former ruling party leaders were discussing the diplomatic cipher.

Reports in local media said legal action will be taken against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as top civil leaders termed the issue as a matter of national security, which needs legal action.

Federal Investigators will start the probe by forming a team of top officers, while officials from intelligence agencies will likely be included in the investigation team.

A handout issued after the cabinet meeting said the cabinet committee will consist of the representatives of the coalition parties in the government, along with ministers.
