The audio clip warning of a lockdown in Karachi circulating on social media and being attributed to Karachi Mayor Wasim Akthar is fake.
The mayor released a video in which he said it isn't his voice in the audio clip. Calling it a conspiracy, Akhtar said he would never say anything so irresponsible.
In the fake audio clip, a person says the city will be locked down and speaks of how many entry and exit points will remain open.
The mayor called it a conspiracy and said people shouldn't listen to this deviltry.
