According to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), a female officer of the Social Welfare Department has complained that 25 17th grade female officers of the department are being harassed.
According to FIA officials, the women officers had filed a petition in the Sindh High Court to claim their seniority, and only after the petition, the mobile numbers of the women officers were posted on immoral websites.
Female officers are receiving immoral messages and calls from domestic and foreign numbers. FIA officials say a formal cybercrime investigation has been launched into the female officer’s complaint.
FIA officials suspect that an official from the relevant department was involved in leaking the women’s numbers.
Additional Director Cyber Crime Circle Faizullah said that first the women’s numbers will be removed from the website in collaboration with Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and then the accused will be arrested.
