Following weeks of a lull in the audio leaks saga, another audio clip surfaced on Thursday purportedly featuring PTI leader Zulfi Bukhari and Bushra Bibi, the wife of PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who could be heard talking about the sale of [wristwatches] in the possession of former premier.
The 21-second audio, which made the rounds on social media, begins with Zulfi and Bushra exchanging pleasantries before the latter talks about watches.
There are a few [watches] of Khan sahib who wants them to be delivered to you so you could sell them. These watches are not in his use so he wants them to be sold off,” Bushra Bibi purportedly told Bukhari.
The conversation ends with Zulfi replying in absolute agreement, saying “sure, murshid. I will do it.”
Bukhari or the PTI have yet to comment on it.
A series of audio recordings have surfaced of late, allegedly featuring the leadership of the PTI and the PML-N holding informal conversations never meant to be heard by the public.
Some of the clips featured purported conversations between the PTI chief and his former ministers and principal secretary about a cipher that he has for long presented as evidence of a “foreign conspiracy” to oust him from office.
In October, an alleged audio of Imran was leaked to social media, featuring the PTI chief talking about the cipher with party leaders Shireen Mazari and Asad Umar.
The audio — slightly longer than a minute — was the second that was released in a day featuring the PTI chairman. In the clip, the trio were discussing the cipher and allegedly strategising on how to “play it up in the public”.
Earlier the same day, an audio recording had surfaced featuring a voice — sounding like Imran’s — discussing “buying five” and “numbers game”.
