FIA cybercrime law

Three months after registering a case against DIG Gilgit-Baltistan on the basis of Cybercrime Law, Junaid Arshad, FIA still hasn’t made an arrest for his alleged involvement in a cybercrime.

Earlier this year, Ayesha Subhani, the ex-wife of the DIG registered an FIR with the cyber crime wing of FIA against her former husband who allegedly with the help of his friend Danish Ghani blackmailed her by uploading her objectionable pictures on social media.

Last month, he was suspended from his post owing to the severity of the allegations and after the rejection of his bail plea from the court the mighty FIA still hasn’t been able to get their hands on the accused, reports Rauf Klasra on his show Muqabil.

Previously, after repeated summons, Junaid Arshad failed to appear before the investigative agency and now the cyber crime wing is reportedly hesitating to make an arrest because he wear’s a police uniform and is high in rank than any other officer in the FIA’s cyber wing.

Cybercrime Law was never considered a perfectly drafted legislation but until now we have seen a few cases where the victims have received justice for the wrongs that they have suffered.Alas, this situation further gives way to the belief that laws are just for the poor and not for the powerful.

Cybercrimes, with the inclusion of internet, are growing out of proportion where despite the introduction of new legislation last year the authorities have received 1612 cybercrime related complaints in Punjab only.

Looking at the circumstances FIA needs to rethink whether they want people to seriously step forward and seek justice for with their help or wait till the institutions consider the law equal for everyone in the country.

Mr abrar aka junaid arshad aka umer Shahzad etc, no matter how many identities u fake, remember the skunk inside u stink badly even with your words and is not just limited to your deeds!!! Alhamdulillah the lady is free from the shackles of this abuser, criminal, opportunist, manipulator and user of women, who had not only made her life a living hell and went on with his lethal designs to destruct her socially, professionally and morally, but is horrendously still trying hard to do the same to her n her children as per his character! Although manipulators cant stop lying but let me first put this fact down that when a woman offers Shukrana Nawafil to Almighty the day she gets her khula decree passed and receives the very sought after divorce certificate it says all about the past she had lived. So try not to twist the facts. No noble woman would ever like to be associated with a retrograde specie but its funny how the accused keeps on changing stance and thinks if he succeeds in claiming himself linked to the woman he would be held above law! Just remember crime has got nothing to do with… Read more »

Are you his friend? Maybe you should notify the police and tell them where he is instead of spewing BS about matters you know nothing of. The woman has gone through years of physical abuse at this coward’s hands and despite her influence couldn’t report him because he’s in the police. But your defence shows that you are clearly his friend and should report where he is or prepare to face the consequences yourself.

It would have been appropriate and just that you should have obtained the version of Junaid Arshad before launching this malicious campaign about him. It is very sad state of affairs that the case was registered in violation of FIA rules and law just because of the father of Ayesha Subhani. Where all corrupt judges have ganged up to destroy and blackmail.

You have posted a totally false and baseless news about Junaid Arshad. Ayesha Subhani has not been divorced Nd is still his wife. This estranged wife has attempted to blackmail his husband through this social media stunt. The father of Ayesha Subhani is retired Chief Justice Punjab and current Chairman Federal Services Tribunal a very defamed corrupt and PCO Judge who in collusion with other Judges of High Court and Supreme court is blackmailing Junaid.
