Yesterday, Karachi police arrested two alleged extortionists posing as National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officers to threaten citizens.

Two ‘extortionists’ have been arrested by Clifton police officials after a complaint registered by a citizen for receiving threatening telephone calls from the accused posing as NAB officers.

After registering the complaint, the citizen asked the accused to reach a location to receive the extortion money. When the accused reached the said location, police nabbed the ‘extortionists’.

The arrested men were identified as Jameel and Bilal. Police added that the arrested men were sent by other members of a gang namely Saqib and Javed to collect the extortion money.

Clifton police said that raids are being conducted to arrest the absconders including Saqib and Javed. Police started a thorough investigation after registering a case against the accused.
