Bloggers in Pakistan are arrested for Posting Fake Images Online






At 3 three bloggers had been asked by FIA Cyber Crime Wing Islamabad to present themselves before investigation officer on (Dec 31st, 2016) for posting images of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif with a PML(N) leader while wrongly attributing him as Justice Saqib Nisar. While these bloggers had removed the images, made themselves available at FIA office Islamabad but only to get arrested.Families of these bloggers,were clueless and had no idea on whereabouts of their kids.

All these 3 part time bloggers, hailing from Multan, had posted images in question online and FIA was able to track them down through WHOIS information available on their website.These three bloggers were among few thousands other online users who had shared the images in question on Whatsapp, Facebook and through other social media channels.

As per sources we know that these bloggers are now detained by the FIA, however, nothing has been said officially on the matter as of yet.Chaudhary Nisar, Interior Minister, had ordered the FIA to investigate the culprits behind spreading fake image of Mr. Sharif with Chief Justice.While we aren’t certain about the section of cyber crime bill that’s being investigated, but from the looks it appear that bloggers might be charged with “Cyber Terrorism”.
