The FIA Cybercrime Circle Lahore arrested three main suspects in online loan apps.
According to FIA officials, the operation was carried out in a posh area of Lahore—the arrested accused have been identified as Sulaiman, Owais and Abdul Rehman.
The accused used to harass the borrowers by making threatening calls from different phone numbers.
The details of the borrowers were also hacked and objectionable pictures were used for harassment.
A case has been registered against the accused under the PECA Act.
The Cyber Crime Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has already launched a crackdown on online loan apps following the tragic suicide of a 42-year-old man named Muhammad Masood from Rawalpindi.
