The Cyber Crime Reporting Centre (CCRC) of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has arrested a man in Lahore under harassment and blackmailing charges.
A statement issued by CCRC’s Deputy Director Chaudhry Sarfraz announced this yesterday.
He said that the department received a complaint from a Sheikhupura resident whose sister was being harassed and blackmailed with objectionable content.
The girl met the alleged blackmailer (the name was not revealed) a few months ago. The two became friends online and met each other later on.
