Chopper crash in Balochistan Govt to arrest all culprits involved in social media propaganda

61

Government on Tuesday decided to arrest all individuals involved in negative social media campaign following the helicopter crash in Balochistan’s Lasbela district in which six Pakistan army soldiers were martyred, sources claimed on Tuesday.

Sources added that even people who led the propaganda, as revealed through investigations by those already arrested, will also be apprehended. The investigations so far disclosed the involvement of Indian accounts in the social media campaign.

A campaign against the Pakistan Army began after workers of a political party and accounts of Indian-origin were actively participating via their social media accounts.

As a result of the investigations, around 17 Indian accounts have been found linked to the campaign. Investigations against malicious propaganda after the incident are currently underway by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). The FIA’s Cyber Crime Wing, last week, registered a case against the campaign and initiated a probe.

The investigation team includes Director Operations Waqar Chauhan, Additional Director Ayaz, and Assistant Director Imran Haider, sources said.
