ISLAMABAD: A criminal case has been registered against five Airport Security Force (ASF) officials designated at Islamabad airport, on charges of their involvement in human trafficking.
According to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sources, the accused, whose original name is Muhammad Atique, had been deported from Birmingham by British immigration officials for carrying fake documents. Atique, who was carrying the travelling documents of Muhammad Yousaf, boarded the Birmingham-bound flight on Monday with the help of Muhammad Shafique, ASF sub-inspector and other ASF officials.
Immigration sources said a person named Ghulam Murtaza went to the immigration counter and got the boarding card. Later he left the airport premises and handed the ticket and boarding card to Muhammad Attique.
Shafique, with the help of ASF officials, allegedly took Attique to the apron and helped him board the Birmingham bound flight. The ASF sub-inspector is the elder brother of Attique. Attique was later deported by British authorities who sent him on a flight to Islamabad on Tuesday.
During preliminary investigations, the accused confessed he had paid Rs 500,000 to Ghulam Murtaza for providing fake documents. staff report
