The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested seven officials of the Sindh Home Department, Foreigners' Registration Branch and Passport Office Karachi on Friday. The racket was also accused of corruption.


The FIA investigation was conducted after the agency was tipped off by its Anti-Human Trafficking Unit Assistant Director Sohail Faiz about the issuance of fake Indian visas at the passport office, the Nation reports.


According to an FIA official, the passport office in Saddar area was raided, in which two officials, namely Aslam Baig, Habibur Rehman, and a travel agent Mehmood Ali were arrested.
