Reports in local media quoting the former judge said that those who hacked his WhatsApp will only regret it. Known for judicial activism, Nisar hinted that his WhatsApp will likely be used for some propaganda.
Recalling his previous audio leaks, Saqib Nisar said he earlier falls victim to the data breach and his audio clips were tweaked with mal-intent.
