Leaked audio clip purportedly has ex-PM Imran’s wife discussing sale of wristwatches

ISLAMABAD: A new audio track, mainly containing the voice of Pakistan Former Prime Minister Imran khanBushra’s wife bibiwas leaked on Thursday in which she allegedly asked a senior Pakistani official Tehreek-i-Insaaf, Zulfi Bukharito sell her husband’s watch.
The 21-second audio clip revives the controversy over Imran Khan sells his “toshakhana (state archives)” gifts.
In the latest recording, Bibi allegedly asked Bukhari to sell some watches owned by the PTI president. “There are some watches by Khan Sahib that want to deliver them to you (Zulfi Bukhari) so you can sell them. These watches are not used by him so he wants to sell them,” Bushra Bibi purposefully told Bukhari.
In response, Bukhari assured Khan’s wife that the job would be done. The conversation ended with Zulfi saying, “Sure, murshid (spiritual guru). I will do it.”
Bukhari then reacted strongly to the purported audio, saying he neither sold nor bought a watch and demanded that the audio be subjected to forensic examination. “I’m willing to pay for it (audit),” he added.
Last August, a reference was filed against the head of PTI in Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) by the incumbent coalition government for “not sharing details” about the toshakhana gifts and the proceeds from their alleged sale.
In a written response to the ECP on September 8, Imran admitted to selling at least four gifts he had received during his tenure as Prime Minister. In his reply, Imran asserted that he had sold the gifts he had acquired from the state treasury after paying Rs 21.56 million (Pakistani rupees). The gifts included a Master Graff wristwatch, a pair of cufflinks, an expensive pen, a diamond ring and four Rolex watches. A month later, the election watchdog removed Khan from his position as a legislator after finding his statement and statements, which are filed annually with the electoral body, were false and inaccurate.
Last month, the election authority sent a reference to the magistrate’s court asking them to proceed against Imran under criminal law for allegedly deceiving officials about gifts he had received from dignitaries. abroad during the Prime Minister’s term. The commission also sought a three-year prison sentence and a fine as punishment.
Khan challenged the ECP’s ruling in Islamabad high court.
