Alleged audio of PTI leader Dr. Yasmin Rashid and Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Ghulam Mahmood Dogar has surfaced on social media.
In the audio clip, a voice, believed to be PTI leader Dr. Yasmin Rashid can be heard asking if there was any “good news” and if the “order” had been placed, to which Dogar responds that the orders had not been received yet.
Making an apparent reference to PTI Chairman Imran Khan, the voice supposedly belonging to Dr Yasmin Rashid says he is “concerned” about Dogar’s reinstatement.
Ghulam Mahmood Dogar in the alleged clip flagged signatures of judges on the post-carrying orders as the reason behind the delay. The brief audio clip ends with the PTI leader laughing after getting a positive response from the senior police official.
The recent development comes as Supreme Court reinstated Ghulam Dogar as Capital City Police Officer of Lahore after suspending his transfer order made by Mohsin Naqvi-led caretaker setup.

Pertinent to mention that this is not the first time an audio clip featuring prominent political leaders or officials has surfaced.
Earlier, former Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi came in the spotlight after three audio-clips allegedly featuring him went viral on social media on Thursday in which he could be heard telling his ‘lawyer’ to get a certain judge for hearing the case of his close aide, Muhammad Khan Bhatti.
Similarly, audio clips of PTI Chairman Imran Khan, PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz, former Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin, and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif among others have also gone viral.
The frequent audio leaks have raised concern for Pakistan’s cyber security. Interestingly, most of the audios were leaked from the Prime Minister’s Office.
