Bashir Memon, former director general of the Federal Investigations Agency (FIA), has confirmed a hacker’s claim that he was locked in a bathroom on the orders of then-prime minister Imran Khan.
The former cop confirmed the allegations made by a hacker on Twitter in an interview with a private news channel.
The hacker revealed inside information about Memon’s meeting with the former PM in a series of tweets that have since been deleted.
It was claimed that the former DG FIA was locked in a PM House washroom and forced to obey Imran Khan’s orders.
Memon, in response to the allegations, confirmed the details, claiming that the former premier used abusive language toward PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz, which outraged him and compelled him to respond harshly.
Memon went on to say that the then-principal secretary to Prime Minister Azam Khan grabbed his hand, led him out of the room, and locked him in the washroom.
“Azam Khan then chastised me for my behaviour with the prime minister,” Memon explained.
It is worth noting that the government has formed a high-powered committee to investigate audio leaks from the PM House that have raised concerns about the country’s cyber security.
Multiple audio leaks of PM House meetings have surfaced online, igniting a new political debate over the PTI’s US conspiracy narrative.
The former prime minister was allegedly heard strategizing about the US cypher issue and how to use it to support the party’s narrative in one of the audios.
