ISLAMABAD: The FIA Cybercrime Circle has lodged a case against several prominent figures from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, accusing them of initiating a purportedly baseless campaign against state institutions through social media.
The nominated individuals facing allegations include former finance minister Hammad Azhar, Musarrat Jamshed Cheema, former deputy speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Suri, former Punjab governor Omer Sarfraz Cheema, Senator Azam Swati, Ali Zaidi of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party, and former senior vice president of PTI, Fawad Chaudhry.
While the agency initially summoned the accused for questioning, none of them participated in the investigative proceedings.
Subsequently, the agency proceeded with an independent inquiry.
Sources have revealed that during the course of this inquiry, the FIA amassed substantial evidence, prompting the formal registration of a case against the aforementioned individuals.
