FIA Official Suspended For Harassing Minor Girl At Karachi Airport
A Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sub-inspector has been suspended over inappropriate conduct for harassing a 15-year-old girl at Karachi International Airport. The girl was travelling alone when the FIA sub-inspector asked for her contact number and ‘mithaai’ (sweets). He also asked the girl to visit him in Bahrain.
He was then confronted by others present at the airport who also recorded a video while berating him for his behaviour.
This is what happens with girls/women on traveling alone to Pakistan.
The first harassment they face at immigration and then the process continues.

The FIA official told them that he made the ‘mithaai‘ comment as a joke and asking the contact number of the girl was a requirement.
