KARACHI: The FIA Crime Cell has arrested a criminal wanted by the Interpol for his involvement in a fraud of Rs 55 million. Sources in the FIA told Daily Times that Faraz, a deputy manager of a private security exchange firm set up in Fujerah, UAE was involved in cyber crimes and wanted for illegal transactions of millions of rupees through the Internet. The culprit issued fake receipts to the people who wished to transfer their money via the security exchange company and transferred all the money into his relatives’ accounts. “The complaints against him were increasing day-by-day and when the investigation was initiated, Faraz fled the UAE and came to Karachi,” said Sub Inspector Shahbaz Bhatti.
He said that the FIA registered a case, 81/08, against Faraz on behalf of the security exchange firm’s local manager, Asad Aziz, and has started the investigation. The FIA Crime Cell arrested Faraz on Eid when he was leaving to offer prayers near the railway crossing in Model Colony, Malir. The FIA confirmed that the culprit was involved in a fraud of Rs 55 million and was using different accounts for the illegal transfer of money.
