FIA report sought on Chinese bail plea

Lahore

May 15, 2019

LAHORE: A court of judicial magistrate on Tuesday sought report from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on a bail application moved by 11 Chinese nationals accused of human trafficking and organ trade.

The judicial magistrate, Amir Raza, has issued notices to FIA directing it to submit report in this regard. Previously, the court had sent the accused to jail on 14-day judicial remand.

As per FIA, the gang allegedly took Pakistani girls to China where they are forced to adopt prostitution, or used for organ trade, slavery and bonded labour. The modus operandi of the accused showed Pakistani agents used to woo Pakistani girls for a bright future through their marriages with Chinese men. For the purpose, all bogus documentation was carried out like Nikahnama, bogus marriage registration certificates and fake particulars of Chinese nationals.
