A group of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officers has allegedly been trapping citizens to extort money from them.
In a letter to deputy director cybercrime wing on May 21, FIA’s circle in-charge, Sajjad Mustafa Bajwa revealed the existence of the ring within the wing.
“It has been learned through reliable sources that some of the officers of cybercrime wing have knitted an unholy net in connivance with professional women to trap innocent citizens,” the letter read.
Reportedly, a female (it is unclear whether or not she is an FIA employee), after befriending people on social media, sends them obscene material which is then used to frame them in fake cases.
Bajwa also recommended stern action against such officers to ensure that all such cases are taken on merit after approval from the respective heads of the department.
