Following Zubair Umar’s leaked video controversy, the Avari Hotel has issued a clarification statement.
The development comes as a number of social media users came forward identifying the room of Avari Hotel Karachi. Netizens claimed that it was one of the Avari Hotel rooms that featured in the alleged Zubair Umar’s leaked video clip.
The hotel management in this regard has released a clarification statement, purportedly in connection with a compromised video clip involving PML-N senior leader and former Sindh governor Muhammad Zubair Umar.
The clarification statement reads ” The Avari Family, Avari Hotels, its Executives and team members wish to clarify that there are no hidden cameras placed in the rooms in their direct or indirect knowledge”.
“If something was caught by an in-room camera, it was illegally placed, unknown to us, and doesn’t have our consent”.
Avari groups never promote spying or breaking the privacy of its guests/clients”, the statement further read.

However, Mohammad Zubair has termed the leaked video a fake and said the doctored video had been launched against him.
Mohammad Zubair who is also the brother of federal minister Asad Umar, in a tweet said, “This is no politics. In fact a new low !! By launching a fake & doctored video against me.”
“Whoever is behind this has done an extremely poor & shameful act. I have served my country with honesty, integrity & commitment. I Will continue to raise my voice for the betterment of Pakistan,” Zubair Umar added.
On the other hand, social media users are trying hard to connect the dots over the leaked video controversy.
