Following the audio leak scandal, PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has revealed that his party intends to approach courts and will seek the formation of a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe which intelligence agency is involved in the “bugging” of the PM House and Office.
Taking to Twitter, Imran Khan called the audio leaks a “serious breach of national security”. He also revealed that his house was also bugged while he was the prime minister.
“The audio leaks are a serious breach of national security as they call into question the entire security of the PMO, PMH. As PM my secure line at my residence was also bugged. We intend to go to Court to establish the authenticity of leaks and then form JIT to investigate which intelligence agency is responsible for the bugging and who is leaking out the audios many of which are edited/doctored,” Imran Khan said on Twitter.
“This is critical because sensitive security issues are and have been illegally recorded and subsequently hacked, implying confidentiality of Pakistan’s national security has been exposed globally,” the former premier further added.

Audio leaks scandal
Recently, many audios are being released by a “hacker” who has claimed of possessing multiple audio clips from the PM House. Many audio clips have been released lately, including those of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
Imran Khan’s first audio leak was on the US cipher and is at the center of PTI’s claim that the US conspired with elements within Pakistan to dislodge Imran Khan from office. It was released in two parts.
Two audio leaks allegedly involving the PTI chief also went viral on Friday. Imran Khan, in one of them, was heard allegedly discussing horse trading with an aide.
The leaked audios have put the PM Office’s security in question. Pertinent to mention that the federal cabinet has already formed a committee to investigate the breach of security.
