RAWALPINDI: The Federal Investigation Agency’s cyber crime wing has arrested two Pakistani illegal immigrants allegedly involved in human smuggling and secretly filming women in Turkey.
Both the suspects had been arrested by Turkish police and deported to Pakistan.
A FIA spokesman said the suspects were involved in human trafficking and secretly making films of women in Turkey and uploading those on social media. Both were deported to Pakistan by the Turkish authority which led to the registration of a case against them by the cyber crime wing and launching of an investigation to track down their accomplices.
The arrests of the suspects – Mohammad Junaid and Ameer Khan - came about in separate operations after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, currently on an official visit to Turkey, took notice and directed the FIA to take action against them.
The spokesman said the suspects were involved in transportation of illegal immigrants from Pakistan to Turkey.
