A viral video on social media shows Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) officials barbarically beating two women at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad.
Not long ago, a video showing passengers and FIA officials fighting went viral on social media. The new one shows how female staff of FIA physically assaulted women passengers over a disagreement.
In the video, the assaulted women can be heard screaming for help as bystanders do nothing to stop the fight.
Take a look at the video below:

It is being suggested that the new video is of the same incident where FIA officials beat a Norwegian passenger at the airport over some petty issue.
According to the assaulted woman’s mother, Haseena Begum, she and her daughters, Fouzia and Fatima, were scheduled to fly at 12:45pm. After obtaining their boarding cards and handing over their luggage, one of the daughters went to the toilet. On her way back she asked airport staff to provide her with toilet paper.
Noshila, the FIA official who was asked for the toilet paper, felt offended and rudely replied that it wasn’t her job to provide people with tissue papers.
The matter escalated quickly as both women continued to converse in a harsh manner. The FIA official threatened the women that she wouldn’t let them travel to Norway and snatched the victims’ boarding cards and passports. She tore the boarding passes and started beating the women.
More videos that show the female passengers misbehaving with the airport staff have also leaked. The CCTV footage is linked below:
FIA’s immigration department has since then released a statement claiming that the three female passengers had misbehaved with the airport staff which resulted in the fight. How that justifies a public beating in an airport is beyond us though.
Update: FIA has notified that the female constable, who was seen beating the passengers, has been arrested. New videos added which reveal the other side of the story.
