PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has rejected the latest audio clip attributed to him, calling it fake. He also clarified that he never met the LHC chief justice.
Taking to Twitter, Fawad Chaudhry completely rejected the content of the audio clip and said he never asked the LHC Chief justice to help Justice Mazahir.
“Another fake audio has been thrown in the market in my name. This audio has nothing to do with me, nor did I ever meet the Chief Justice of Lahore, nor did I ask him to help Justice Mazahir,” Fawad Chaudhry said.
ایک اور جعلی آڈیو میرے نام سے مارکیٹ میں پھینک دی گئ ہے اس آڈیو کا میرے سے کوئ تعلق نہیں نہ ہی چیف جسٹس لاہور سے کبھی ملاقات ہوئ نہ ہی انھیں جسٹس مظاہر کی مدد کا کہا

This is not the first time that Fawad Chaudhry has become the target of leaked audio clips. In January, an alleged audio clip of his surfaced online where a voice that is said to be of Fawad Chaudhry could be heard asking a journalist to report some ruthless move of the Election Commission of Pakistan.
Lately, Pakistan is witnessing a slew of audio leaks featuring prominent political leaders. Recently, alleged audio of PTI leader Dr. Yasmin Rashid and Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Ghulam Mahmood Dogar surfaced on social media. Before that former Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi came into the spotlight after three audio-clips allegedly featuring him went viral on social media 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.
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.
