KARACHI: A judicial magistrate remanded on Wednesday a suspect to the custody of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for a week, for his alleged involvement in money laundering. The suspect, Abdul Majeed, was arrested by the FIA on charges of illicit transaction of money through hawala hundi process and thus causing a loss to national exchequer. District East magistrate, Sobia Latif, remanded the suspect to FIA custody for interrogation and sought a progress report on next hearing. Meanwhile, the same court remanded a suspect, Zainul Abidin, for allegedly harassing teenagers on Facebook. The suspect was taken into custody from Soldier Bazaar, following an enquiry against him over luring teenagers into sexual acts. The accused will be produced before the court again on December 7.
