FIA arrests two men for cyberharassment, extortion in Peshawar | Pakistan

PESHAWAR: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday arrested two men for blackmailing, cyber-harassing, and extorting women on social media, it said in a statement.

According to the FIA, the two arrested cyber-criminals were identified as Swabi resident Ahmed Zaib and Fakhr-e-Alam.

Ahmed Zaib, the FIA said, used to share his wife’s photos on social media after entering into a secret nikkah with her. He also used to extort hundreds of thousands of rupees against her photos.

Fakhr-e-Alam, on the other hand, made fake accounts of women on social media websites. However, when one of those women noticed her photo on a social media network, she reported the matter to the FIA and lodged a formal complaint, following which the suspect was tracked down and arrested.

The agency said it recovered mobile phones and SIM cards from the arrestees.
