Islamabad: Fake ISI official arrested from the camp
ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Police have arrested a retired army officer from the camp set up by the families of missing persons at D-Chowk, who was allegedly impersonating himself as a representative of a sensitive intelligence agency, and booked him in a criminal case, police said.
Secretariat Police Station SHO Hakim Khan confirmed the report when contacted by this scribe for his comments. He said that police received a complaint from people sitting in the camp, saying that a man had introduced himself as Captain Shuaibullah Cheema, a representative of Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
The participants of the camp, including Amna Masood Janjua, leading the missing persons’ campaign, told police that a couple of days back, he came to the camp and said that he was sent by the ISI to talk to the families of missing persons. According to them, he asked them to follow offers of the agency otherwise they have to face dire consequences. He allegedly said that he could arrange a meeting of the families of missing persons with top officers of the ISI. The complainants said that the man offered a deal from the agency that missing persons have been divided into three categories, saying that the missing persons of the first category could be released in first stage and the persons included in the second category would be freed after sometime. However the missing persons included in the third category could not be released at any cost.
Police, after verifying the credentials of Captain (r) Shuaibullah Cheema, found him a fraud and arrested him from the camp after lodging an FIR against him under Sections 419/170 and 506 of the PPC.
