The Cyber Crime Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has busted a gang involved in running an immoral website during a raid on a flat in Karachi.
According to the news reports, FIA officials that the raid was conducted on a flat in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal area on Saturday.
One of the arrested men has been identified as Faisal Qadir who is reportedly the main accused and leader of the gang. The group comprises more than 35 members.
Nine mobile phones, computers, and other electronic devices were confiscated during the raid.
According to the officials, immoral videos have been found in the electronic equipment seized.
The gang was allegedly involved in using women in immoral activities and arrange their meetings with ‘customers’.
According to the FIA’s cybercrime cell, the gang used to force women to make “unethical” video calls with international clients.
“The women were connected with people in other parts of the world through online applications,” the authority’s spokesperson said.
“These women were then paid for their calls via virtual currency called diamonds.”
“On every 400,000 diamonds, the women were given a bonus of Rs7,000″, he further added.
The gang had also published several fake advertisements in newspapers.
According to the officials, the women used for immoral video calls were given ‘points’ and were being paid accordingly.
