MPA Kamran Bangash replaced Wazir as the government spokesperson on July 11. It was announced that Wazir was stepping down after evidence of corruption surfaced against him. Prime Minister Imran Khan had ordered a high-level inquiry commission to be constituted against him.

“The chief minister has written a letter to the chief secretary for the inquiry and until then Wazir has been removed from the post,” he had said.

Bangash said that an audio recording of Wazir and the owner of an advertising agency regarding commission for a deal had surfaced and was presented to PM Khan after which the orders were issued.

A forensic report of the audio recording will also be prepared by the inquiry.
