ISLAMABAD—The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has arrested journalist Mohsin Jamil Baig during a raid on his residence in Islamabad.
According to a press statement issued by the agency, the FIA's Cyber Crime Circle raided Baig's house after obtaining a search and seizure warrant from the relevant court.
"During the raid, Mohsin Baig and his son and servants directly fired at the FIA team and made two officials hostage," it further said, adding that Baig was arrested after he ran out of bullets and was taken to Margalla Police Station where legal proceedings were underway.
According to the FIA, the raid was conducted on the complaint of Communications Minister Murad Saeed. He registered a first information report (FIR) against Baig at a cybercrime reporting centre of the agency in Lahore under Sections 20 (offences against the dignity of a natural person), 21-D (offences against modesty of a natural person and minor) and 24 (cyber stalking) of the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act, 2016 read with Sections 500 (defaming army officers) and 555 (statement conducing to public mischief) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
