KARACHI: Karachi police on Sunday arrested a man accused of creating fake Facebook dance party events to dupe those who attend out of the cover charge.

Addressing a press conference a day after making the arrest, Clifton Superintendent of Police Suhaee Aziz said they raided a house in Clifton near Khyber Hotel, in which Arsalaan Qamar, the accused, was nabbed.

In reality, there was no such party and the culprit took the money from the couples and then proceeded to delete the page.

During investigation, it was revealed that the accused had planned four other fake dance parties in the past as well.

SP Aziz said that a police informant acted as one of Qamar's clients and paid him Rs25,000 for a ticket.

When the informant called up the accused to ask for the details of the dance party, he told him to never call him again and that there is no such party.

Qamar also confessed to having sold two party tickets for Rs25,000 each.  Aziz said that they had recovered the amount during the raid of his house.
