FIA raids fake FIA Cyber Crime Office in Karachi

ISLAMABAD - Karachi police, in a successful raid, have busted a group operating a fake Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) office in Soldier Bazar, Karachi. The gang had established a fake Cyber Crime Cell in the area, which they were using to guise a torture cell.

According to the police, the group was running a torture cell under the guise of FIA’s Cyber Crime Cell. The footage from the CCTV cameras inside the office has confirmed that several people were tortured. ------------------------------

FIA says that the group was apprehended during the raid, while those tortured were identified through video footage.

“We were attacked during the raid,” said an FIA official and added that a case has been registered at the Soldier Bazaar police station. ------------------------------

Earlier in October this year, FIA’s Cyber Crime Cell arrested a woman from Karachi for running an illegal gateway exchange.

During the raid, FIA confiscated seven gateways, a sixteen-port device, a TP-link router, three laptops, internet USB, and 175 SIM cards from the scene.
