Fake Army Captain arrested over blackmailing people

SARGAODHA - *Men impersonating army captain were arrested from Sargodha over cybercrime charges*

Cases were registered against Muhammad Imran, Muhammad Hasnain, Jumma Khan and Akbar Ali under seven sections of the Pakistan Electronic Crimes Act, read with five sections of the Pakistan Penal Code.

According to the FIA, the men would blackmail people, pretending to be army officials. On other occasions, they would pretend they are calling from India.

FIA officials said the men would fool people by saying they have won cash prizes in some game show. People who would fall for such tactics would be asked to send a fee via Easy Load. After they would transfer the money, the callers would switch off their phones.
