On the 13th of June, 2012, Bokhari and co-host Mubashar Lucman on Dunya News, interviewed Malik Riaz, Pakistani property tycoon and owner of the Bahria Town Group, who had made a string of corruption accusations against Arsalan Iftikhar, son of the then Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chauhdry. One day after the interview aired, a recording of supposedly off-air conversations between Bokhari, Lucman, and Riaz during scheduled breaks of the interview surfaced on YouTube. The nature of the conversation and comments gave credence to the assertion that the entire interview was staged to benefit Malik Riaz by asking guided questions to give Riaz the opportunity to malign the then Chief Justice.
