According to Dawn newspaper, in the recording, Riaz was heard telling Zardari that Khan was sending him messages.
“Today, he (Imran Khan) has sent too many messages,” Riaz told Zardari who responded by saying, “It is impossible now.”‘ “It’s okay. I just wanted to bring this to your notice,” the voice reported to be of Riaz, said.
The PTI took no time in labelling the audio as ‘fake.’ On the other hand, members of Asif Ali Zardari’s party, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said the recording ‘seemed genuine.’
“A business personality and an anti-Imran Khan politician are having a conversation which is being attributed to Imran Khan. However, the conversation has nothing to do with reality,” PTI leader Shahbaz Gill said on the matter, according to the Express Tribune newspaper.
