ISLAMABAD: Saturday saw big drama when the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) first arrested some people to question them regarding their social media posts against the armed forces and state institutions and later released them.
Strangely, the action was taken by the Counter-Terrorism Wing of the FIA instead of its Cyber Crime Wing, sources told The Express Tribune on Saturday.
A top FIA official, on the condition of anonymity, said six people were summoned for questioning by the agency for their tweets and posts against the armed forces on social media. However, the agency did not formally charge anybody or made any arrests, the official said.
According to sources, the arrests were made from several parts of the country. More arrests are likely to take place in the coming days, they added.
