A man has been arrested after the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) discovered that he had been spreading false material on Twitter under the guise of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
The individual whose Twitter handle is @RameezRajaLive has been detained, according to the details, for impersonating Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on the social media platform Twitter. Abubakar Umer, who is in charge of digital media for the PM, took to Twitter to make the announcement of the arrest.
He tweeted that the individual behind the RameezRajaLive account has been found and arrested for impersonating the Prime Minister and misleading the people.
Abubakar claims that the accused has confessed and that a complaint under section 16 of the Pakistan Evidence Act of 2016 read with section 419 and section 505 of the Pakistan Penal Code has been lodged against him.
The PM’s point of contact also stated that “dissent is welcome.” False information, however, is not.
He continued by saying, “Let the law run its course.”
A few days ago, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested a few people for operating bogus accounts of Army leaders like Major General Faisal Mushtaq and Major General Asghar. The account created the false impression that the Army officials were affiliated with a specific political party.
