The Cybercrime Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has conducted three separate raids resulting in the arrest of two suspects involved in fraudulent activities related to the popular online game PUBG and one suspect accused of blackmailing a woman through objectionable videos.
One of the cases involved suspects Hasan Shakir and Ameer Hamza, who are accused of duping a complainant into paying Rs 820,000 (approximately 4,700 USD) for a PUBG account. The complainant reported the fraudulent activity, leading to the arrest of the two individuals. They have been booked under the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (Peca).

In another case, the FIA’s cybercrime cell arrested Zaheer Babar, who allegedly shared objectionable pictures of the complainant through social media and was involved in blackmailing the individual. The investigation revealed that objectionable material was found on the accused’s mobile phone.
These arrests highlight the FIA’s efforts to combat cybercrimes and fraudulent activities, particularly those involving online gaming platforms and digital extortion. Such actions are subject to legal consequences under Pakistan’s Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act.
