Islamabad, Sep 28 (PTI) A high-level security meeting in Pakistan on Wednesday approved the formation of a high-powered committee to probe the embarrassing audio leaks from the Prime Minister's Office that have triggered a controversy and demands for Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's resignation.

A slew of audio recordings featuring confidential conversations of the prime minister with high-government officials surfaced on social media last week, raising questions about the security of the highest office of the country.

Prime Minister Sharif on Wednesday chaired the meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) on the issue.
