District: (Human trafficking goes unchecked in Sialkot region)


SIALKOT: The number of victims of the human traffickers is increasing day by day due to the lack of effective legal action against the human traffickers.

The human traffickers are becoming influential and their illegally activities including sending the people abroad illegally are increasing in the Sialkot district.

Earlier, arrest of big human traffickers has also become a big challenge for the FIA. This situation was now becoming alarming besides leaving question marks on the performance of the concerned law enforcing agencies.

The law enforcing agencies including Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) should ensure the quick and pre-scam action against the human traffickers and travel agencies, when they are doing this illegal business by launching the attractive advertisement campaigns.

The plundering of Rs.330 million by a Daska based travel agent from thousands of the local innocent people by offering them lucrative Umrah packages, has become the second biggest financial scam after the Double Shah financial scam , in Gujranwala Division.

The thousands of affectees of Umra scam from Daska, Sambrial, Uggoki, Pasrur, Shakargarh, Noor Kot and surrounding areas were still disappointed about the return of their amounts after recovery from the fleeing accused travel agent Mohammad Ikram Mughal of Daska by the FIA.

The accused had fled away to Dubai after plundering Rs.330 from thousands of innocent people by offering them lucrative Umra packages.

The affectees said that it was the second biggest financial scam in Gujranwala Division after the Double Shah financial scam. They said affectees of Double Shah financial scam were still waiting for their amounts. Thus, they were also disappointed about the return of their amounts after arresting the accused travel agent who is hiding in Dubai.

The affectees also expressed grave concern over the slow paced investigation of this financial scam by FIA, alleging that the pace of the FIA investigation in this case was very slow, due to which the hopes of early recovery of their amounts after the arrest of main accused were dying day by day.

They said that FIA had registered as many as 147 separate cases against Muhamamd Ikram Mughal on the applications of the affectees. FIA had also seized as many as 4000 passports of the affectees of this major financial scam, besides arresting two companions of the accused, in this regard.
