The Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Cyber Crime Circle on Thursday arrested a man suspected of abusing, torturing and blackmailing a woman in Karachi.
FIA Cyber Crime Circle Additional Director Faizullah Korejo said that the suspect, who belongs to an influential family, was posing as a person linked with the intelligence agency.
Korejo also revealed that the suspect was in possession of obscene videos of several women in two mobile phones and a memory card which the FIA confiscated at the time of his arrest.
A case has been lodged against the culprit on the woman’s complaint.
According to the first information report (FIA), the accused lured the woman to a farmhouse and took obscene pictures of her by force. Later, he blackmailed the woman using the pictures and forced her to have a physical relationship with him.
He also created two fake Facebook profiles of the complainant where he uploaded her photos besides sending them to her relatives when she refused to give in to his sexual advances.
He then continued to force the woman into a relationship with him and at least at one point
tortured her, shaving her head and eyebrows as well as subjecting her to electrocution.
On Thursday, the FIA conducted a raid at the suspect’s office on Tariq Road and arrested him. The FIR states that the suspect surrendered the passwords of fake IDs and confessed of his crime.
