Foreign Currency worth billions discovered from underground warehouse by FIA
In the city of Rawalpindi in the Punjab province of Pakistan, foreign currency warehouse has been discovered. Eight suspects have been arrested. Federal investigative agencies, including the FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) and law enforcement agencies, conducted a raid in the Jhelum area of Rawalpindi during the crackdown on currency smuggling and storage during the lockdown.
It has been reported from sources that based on the identification of the suspects, the FIA and other law enforcement agencies conducted a raid in the Jhelum area of Rawalpindi, where millions of dollars, pounds, riyals, and billions of Pakistani rupees were recovered from the H&H and Al-Hameed currency exchanges. Eight individuals were apprehended at the scene.
It has come to light that during the operation led by FIA Deputy Director Javed Nasrani and Sub-Inspector Gohar Shah, initially over 400 million rupees in local and foreign currency were seized from a digital locker. However, the discovery of hidden currency in the walls and grounds, concealed in digital safes, has led to the revelation of a total amount to be determined after the digital lockers are opened.
It is reported that the owners of the plaza was provided by raiding team legal documents, after which the digital lockers were requested to be unlocked for further examination. During this process, a dispute arose between FIA and the plaza owner over the amount discovered in the private vault, leading the FIA to request police assistance for resolution.
