The Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Cybercrime Wing declared a senior police official as an absconder after he uploaded his wife’s private pictures and videos on social media on Monday.
FIA requested assistance from provincial police and other law enforcement agencies to arrest SP Junaid Arshad, Express News reported.
With the help of a friend, Arshad made a fake Facebook account and forwarded private pictures of his wife to her family. This was done in an attempt to prove her alleged “immorality” after she refused to allow him to marry another woman.
Arshad’s wife registered the complaint against him. During the investigation, the FIA concluded that Arshad was behind the creation of the fake account and registered a case against him. However, Arshad managed to flee after the court rejected his bail.
Last month, the agency’s cybercrime wing arrested a suspect for harassing and blackmailing a girl by threatening to share her private videos and photos.
