ISLAMABAD: Security personnel at the new Islamabad International Airport on Thursday nabbed a man suspected being a human smuggler.
The Pakistani national, identified as Gohar Ali, intended to flee the country and continue his crimes with a forged travel permit for Italy.
However, he was identified, offloaded from the plane and then promptly arrested.
While in detention, Gohar Ali confessed to forging the travel permit with the help of a human smuggling racket after which he was shifted to the anti-human smuggling and trafficking cell.
Earlier on November 26, a mobile smuggler was arrested after being caught red-handed at the same airport. He had manhandled a customs official who discovered the contraband and had tried to flee.
