“Instructions have been issued to FIA and related agencies in this regard,” Sanauallah said, adding that the government “ will wipe out those who spread this kind of filth.”

“There is a need to prevent the incidents of blackmailing through social media content. We will deal with all those involved in such criminal activities with an iron fist,” he added.

Earlier this week, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan accused his political opponents of engaging in fifth-generation warfare against him during an exclusive interview with actor Shaan Shahid on a private news channel.

While the PTI social media wing has been warning the supporters of deep fake videos that might target Imran Khan via obscene content.
