According to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), four suspected human traffickers were arrested on Friday in Mohalla Jhangi, near Qissa Khwani Bazar, as part of a drive against human trafficking.
Officials with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) reported that during the operation, phoney permits, bogus Afghan identity cards, fake marriage certificates, and fabricated seals of the Ministry of Interior were also discovered.
According to FIA officials, the suspects were involved in the forging of immigration documents as well as the production of fictitious Afghan identification cards.
A total of three of the accused were from Peshawar, with one of them being an Afghan national.
For their alleged involvement in money laundering and the Hawala/Hundi business, the Corporate Circle of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Peshawar has arrested as many as 37 people during the month of December.
According to Khawaja Hammad ur Rehman, Deputy Director of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), FIA Peshawar has also been successful in recovering more than Rs50 million during 34 raids conducted in several towns across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, including Peshawar.
He said that more than 100 inquiries that had been pending in the past had been resolved at various periods.
However, despite the government’s ongoing efforts to remove Pakistan from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) grey list, the global anti-money-laundering watchdog has maintained that Pakistan remains on its blacklist.
