PTI did not approach COAS Asim Munir for audio leaks: Ch Fawad

PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry has rejected the reports of approaching COAS Asim Munir regarding the audio leaks. He also asserted that the new Army Chief should not be maligned in such a manner. 

PTI has rejected the reports that it ever approached Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir and requested to put an end to the audio leaks debacle that continues to haunt Pakistan.

Earlier, local media reported PTI leader and President of Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi as saying that he had approached the COAS and expressed concern over the release of audio leaks targetting PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

It was also reported by local media that the COAS was urged to look into the matter and stop the spread of audio leaks, which in turn increased speculations and rumors that perhaps the establishment is behind the audio leaks.

PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry has rejected the reports of approaching COAS Asim Munir regarding the audio leaks. He also asserted that the new Army Chief should not be maligned in such a manner.

“Such attempts to malign the Army chief must be stopped, PTI has never approached COAS with any such demand, actually who cares about fake audio leaks? But suggesting that the leaks are done on the new chief’s orders is absolute rubbish,” Fawad Chaudhry said.

Since September, several political figures have been the target of leaked audio, including Imran Khan. Recently, a scandalous audio clip attributed to Imran Khan was shared on social media where it was suggested that Imran Khan was talking to a woman over the phone.
