Swati's presser

In a press conference a day earlier, the PTI leader said that his wife was sent a video of herself and Swati on her phone without any number.

"The video is of a stay at the Quetta Supreme Court Judicial Lodges," the senator said while incessantly shedding tears during the presser.

He shared that his wife, daughter, and granddaughters have left the country since the video surfaced.

FIA terms Swati's alleged video "fake"

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) declared the alleged video as "fake", stating that the video was analysed forensically as per international forensic analysis standards.

The agency shared that the said video was made using "deep fake tools to create misunderstanding and defame the Honourable Senator".

"Initial forensic analysis revealed that the video has been edited and different video clips have been joined with defaced faces. Further analysis, revealed that faces have been swapped in the images using photoshop," FIA stated in its statement on Saturday.
