PESHAWAR, Oct 31: Local police on Wednesday arrested a man for pretending to be a colonel of Inter-Services Intelligence.

ASP (cantonment) Ali Akbar Khan told reporters here that imposter Amir Murad wanted to acquire 10 kanals of land in Kaghan Valley on lease from the government to open an ISI office and was arrested on inquiry.

He said the arrested man, a resident of Rawalpindi, was a habitual criminal and worked as human resource manger in Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority, vice president in a telephone company, regional manager in a private bank and consultant in some nongovernmental organisations on fake documents.

Mr Ali said the imposter was also involved in extorting money and providing people with fake documents for US and UK visas.

He said police of the east cantonment area had begun investigation after registering a case against the imposter under sections 419, 420, 470, 471 and 465 of Pakistan Penal Code.
