Following the release of a set of audio clippings between Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and other key decision-makers in the government only three days ago, another controversial audio leak surfaced on Wednesday, this time purportedly featuring former premier Imran Khan. The clip making rounds on social media seemingly features a conversation between Imran and his former principal secretary, Azam Khan.

PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Hammad Azhar addressed the latest leaks but did not confirm or deny its veracity.
Chaudhry said in a tweet that the only thing that the new leak confirmed was that “efforts were made to hide the US cypher from the [former] prime minister”.
Meanwhile, Azhar called for releasing the cypher so that the people of Pakistan could decide whether it was a “conspiracy or even more than that”.
Responding to a tweet criticising Imran over the clip, Azhar said: “When Imran Khan was PM, his govt was removed following the exact same script as was given in the cypher. Let that sink in.”
