Sanaullah added that it is considered unlawful to record a personal legal case in public. The PML(N) leader went on to address the leaked audio of Dr. Arsalan Khalid, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)’s head of social media, and the former First Lady, Bushra Bibi. It is pertinent to note that in the leaked audio, Dr. Khalid is allegedly encouraging ousted Imran Khan’s wife to knit a “story of treason”. 

Sanaullah further said that the previous government has not claimed the recording to be fabricated or false, instead, they are supporting the stance that the content was “unnecessary”. Moreover, the PML(N) leader stated that Bushra Bibi was engaged in unlawful activities to guard herself against corruption.
