ISLAMABAD: PTI on Monday demanded the government to launch a probe into audio leaks from the PM House, claiming that the authorities are “purchasing data from hackers” that was put on the dark web.
Senior PTI leader and former federal minister Fawad Chaudhry — who first shared purported audio of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif with an official talking about a request from Maryam Nawaz — said that the PM Office has not yet spoken on the matter.
He said that the PM Office is unsafe from cyber attacks, adding audio files up to 340 hours were leaked but no institution was aware of it.
“We [PTI] spent a lot of money to provide the latest equipment to agencies.”
He claimed that the government is in talks with hackers and purchasing data that was put up for sale on the dark web.
“The hacker has said that the explosive audio is yet to be released,” Fawad said.
About statements from ministers Rana Sanaullah and Marriyum Aurangzeb, Fawad said that their comments on the matter are “funny”.
