PESHAWAR:


Police arrested a man on Monday for masquerading as an Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) official to blackmail the owner of a money exchange in the city. His accomplice was also taken into custody. SP Kashif Zulfiqar said Fazal Rahim called Muhammad Khan, a foreign exchange trader at Deans Trade Centre, and introduced himself as a colonel of ISI.


“He told [Muhammad Khan] that he had proof that he had links with terrorists,” the official said. When Rahim visited his office along with his friend Inam Ali, he introduced himself as a major of the intelligence agency.
