Breaking News – Pakistan (NEWZ247) The FIA on Tuesday arrested 8 suspected human traffickers from Gujranwala and Gujarat as a part of a crackdown in opposition to trafficking that started following the recovery of the bullet-riddled bodies in Baluchistan’s turbat last week.
The bodies of 20 victims were determined in turbat in separate incidents. The victims had been recognized as citizens of Punjab trying to illegally move into Iran on their way to Europe.
The Balochistan liberation front had claimed liability for the deaths and an alleged BLF commander suspected of involvement in the incident became later killed for the duration of an intelligence-primarily based operation by frontier corps (FC) last week.
In a raid carried out with the aid of FIA officers in Gujranwala, 7 suspected traffickers had been arrested and 142 original Pakistani passports have been recovered, according to FIA source.
Fake stamps, photographs, numerous original computerized national identity cards, medical certificates, a photocopier device, a laptop and a web tool had been also recovered from the ownership of dealers, the source stated.
