A man has been arrested by the cybercrime wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday for secretly filming and later blackmailing women.
The man was arrested from Islamabad on Tuesday after the FIA had placed tabs on him and gotten confirmation that the alleged suspect was involved in this crime.
According to the details provided, the FIA officials disclosed that the suspect has been identified as Amjad, who is the owner of a local hotel in Vehari. He is accused of filming woman through secret hidden cameras in the hotel’s rooms.
A complaint against Amjad was launched by a woman who told the FIA officials that the suspect had secretly recorded videos while she was staying at the hotel. He later started blackmailing her and even warned her of dire consequences if she filed a complaint with the authorities.
