Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has started off the new year by registering its first case against their own Deputy Director of Cybercrime Wing, Noman Ashraf Bodla, reports Dunya.
Noman Bodla was arrested for submitting a fraudulent degree. The Deputy Director of FIA’s Cybercrime Wing was under investigation where the agency sent his degree for verification to the Higher Education Commission (HEC).
Reportedly, HEC responded that the degree belongs to some university in America that is not approved by the institution. Upon this reply, FIA arrested Bodla and will present him in court.
This news is deeply disturbing as the people who are tasked with catching the criminals who try to cheat the people are already involved in cheating the government and its citizens altogether.
Pakistanis got the cybercrime law back in September 2016 where FIA was tasked with investigating such crimes and thus the cybercrime wing was established. As we have previously reported, it already faces a dearth of resources as it not yet to be equipped with digital labs, human resource, required number of police stations and the annual budget for dealing with the burgeoning issues.
Amid all this mess, the cybercrimes are rising in the country and the case of Bodla raises a question about the qualification of the rest of the officials.
