Law enforcement agencies claim to have arrested an American citizen involved in suspicious activities near the Kala Chita mountain in the Fateh-Jang area of Lahore.

Intelligence sources told Express 24/7 that an American citizen, Mathew Greg Bennett was involved in suspicious activities near the Kala Chita mountain.

He was followed and arrested by intelligence officials from Rawalpindi.

The American suspect has been shifted to undisclosed location for further interrogation.

The news comes after another American citizen, Aaron Mark DeHaven was barred from leaving the country. DeHaven was initially apprehended in February for staying in Pakistan on an expired visa. He was scheduled to be deported from Peshawar Airport however his travel has been barred on account of carrying incomplete documents.

    OK – just what is suspicious activity and why is it a crime? Apparently just being an American after you have been embarrassed by the OBL fiasco is a crime.Recommend

    How come if US arrests or kills some one, even though they are ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected’, u consider them criminals and if the incident is opposite, u suspect on the validity of arrest??

    If u have followed news well, first DeHaven was arrested and US arrested some imams, including a woman on suspicion.

    This is not about understanding law or to have wisdom. This is about commonsense.Recommend

    Suspicious activity sounds about a threatening as being an American in Pakistan with an expired visa – suppose your going to deport him to Dubai as well.Recommend

    This arrest incident smell like a rotten case of revenge, in a pathetic pitiful attempt to hide the embarrassment and ridicule of Pakistan and its suspicious citizens this is a childish ploy to divert the attention of the massive intelligence failure of our highly paid intelligence and government.Recommend

    American officials not civilians will be chased every where in this world if possible. They really destroyed this world like every super power. Their capitalism is collapsing like socialism in Afghanistan. That’s why they are afraid of Islam as a systemRecommend

    What if the americans start arresting any Pakistani they see in the US for looking “suspicious”? Then the Pakistani media will start crying about Islam bashing.Recommend
