Pakistani investigators arrest two more Chinese men in human trafficking case
FAISALABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Sunday apprehended two more Chinese nationals and four locals from Faisalabad as part of ongoing probe into human trafficking scandal.
The raid was conducted at a house in Eden Garden on the identification of an already arrested Chinese national accused of smuggling Pakistani girls to China, where they were thrown into prostitution.
Two Chinese were arrested in the raid and transferred to jail for investigation.
In addition, four locals were also arrested and produced in a court before being handed over to the FIA on a four-day remand.
Sources privy to the investigation told media that more than 40 girls belonging to Faisalabad, Lahore and Gujranwala districts of Punjab were affected by the scam.
So far 30 Chinese nationals have been rounded up by the FIA for their alleged involvement in the human trafficking case.
According to sources, Pakistani girls were forced into prostitution in China after marrying Chinese man.
In a press statement, Chinese embassy in Islamabad said that it would fully cooperate with Pakistani agency to carry out investigations. The embassy, however, denied claims that Pakistani girls were being used for organ sale.
