LAHORE: The Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) cyber crime wing on Monday declared a senior Punjab Police official as an absconder after he uploaded his wife’s private pictures and videos on social media.
FIA asked assistance from the provincial police and other law enforcement agencies to arrest the accused, SP Junaid Arshad.
Arshad made a fake Facebook account with the help of a friend and sent pictures of his wife to her family, to prove her alleged immorality after she refused to permit him from marrying a second time.
The complaint with the agency was registered by Arshad’s wife.
During the investigation, FIA came to the conclusion that Arshad was behind the creation of the fake account and registered a case against him. Arshad managed to flee after the court rejected his bail.
Last month, the agency’s cyber crime wing arrested a suspect for harassing and blackmailing a girl by threatening to share her private videos and photos.
The suspect was identified as Hammad Khursheed, a resident of Kahuta, Rawalpindi. An officer from the FIA said that the complaint was lodged by a citizen named Mohammad Tariq.
Tariq alleged that the accused was blackmailing his daughter through Whatsapp and demanding money amounting to Rs0.1 million. He told the agency that Hammad accessed data including private photos and videos of his daughter. The complainant added that the suspect was supposed to meet them at the Mozang Orange Line Metro Bus Station.
