ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday busted another human smuggling cell being run by Chinese nationals.

Seven people including three Chinese nationals were arrested by FIA accused of trafficking Pakistani girls to China. The gang was led by a Chinese national Song Chuaoyang who was also arrested. Three Pakistanis and four Pakistanis were arrested by FIA from F-7 sector Islamabad.

According to Deputy Director FIA Kamran Ali, the Chinese nationals were involved in fake marriages with Pakistani girls and later using them for prostitution and organ removal.

The FIA identified the arrested suspects as Song Chuaoyang (ring leader), Rafique Hussain (translator and manager), Sajid (facilitator), Guyong Da, Saima Mustafa, Fusing Bu and Saba Jahangir.

The raid — which was conducted under the supervision of FIA Anti-Human Trafficking Cell Rawalpindi’s Deputy Director Kamran Ali — took place after two women, Tayyaba Gul and Beenish Rasheed, appeared before the director general of FIA to tip the agency off regarding the gang’s activities.

Meanwhile on Tuesday Federal Minister for Interior Brigadier (retd) Ijaz Ahmad Shah took notice of the matter directed concerned departments to take action on the matter immediately. The minister wants ambassadors and government officials to engage in the matter.

Meanwhile on Monday, FIA busted a racket of Chinese nationals involved in trafficking Pakistani girls to China by contracting marriages.

Deputy Director FIA Jamil Ahmad Khan Mayo said authorities, as part of a crackdown against foreigners involved in illegal activities in the country, arrested eight Chinese nationals from Lahore airport and other areas on the charges of trafficking young women to China after marrying them.

According to the official, the suspects, with the assistance of Pakistani agents, contracted marriages with unsuspecting local girls and then trafficked them to China where the victims were forced into prostitution.

They said the suspected leader of the ring is the son of a Punjab Police officer, who had fled when a raid was conducted for his arrest. The officials said the suspected ring leader has acquired interim bail until May 13.
