The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Friday claimed to have arrested a person impersonating as additional director of the agency from Karachi.

Detailing the arrest, the Deputy Director of FIA cybercrime wing said that the accused used to introduce himself as an official of the Sindh police and the agency to fool people.

“Besides impersonating as an FIA official, he also had a fake ID and an office in the name of the agency where he used to commit fraud with the masses,” the official said adding that he also used to introduce his wife as an additional session judge to get monetary benefits.

The FIA recovered cheques of various banks, bank statements from the accused besides also unearthing an email in the name of the agency used for defrauding purposes.

“We have registered a case against the accused”, the deputy director of the cybercrime circle, who oversaw the entire investigation process, said.
