DIG Junaid Arshad to be arrested

LAHORE - Gilgit Baltistan (GB) Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Junaid Arshad is to be arrested on orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan.

SC has ordered his arrest for impersonating his ex-wife on Facebook and posting objectionable photographs of her on the social networking site.

“Are police officers above the law?” the CJP remarked while hearing a petition by Junaid’s ex-wife, Ayesha Subhani, at the Lahore Registry of the Supreme Court. He also ordered Punjab IG to immediately arrest Junaid and sought a report in this regard on Sunday besides directing the interior ministry to place Junaid’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL).

Ayesha, in her petition, had pleaded that Junaid’s bail expired on Wednesday but he was roaming free as authorities were reluctant to arrest him. Earlier in June 2017, she had registered an FIR with FIA’s cybercrime wing for blackmailing her with the assistance of a friend, Danish Ghani, by uploading objectionable pictures of her on social media.
