ISLAMABAD: Akbar Hoti, Director General Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) informed the Senate Standing Committee on Interior Friday that ongoing investigations into Axact scam have revealed the company has got no link with BOL News.
“If the link is proven between Axact and BOL, we will take action against the channel as well,” he said.
The FIA is carrying out investigations into Axact’s affairs as the company is accused of selling fake diplomas to students across the globe.
Hoti informed the committee members the FIA investigations have revealed the company sold thousands of fake degrees to students in the Middle East and the United States.
“Some of fake degree holders have even got jobs in security forces of these countries,” he said, adding the FIA has collected concrete evidence against the company during investigations to present in court.
He said FIA investigations have got nothing to do with the upcoming channel of the company but if something concrete surfaces against BOL during the probe, it would be investigated too.
