In a recent development at Multan International Airport, the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) has taken action to offload a 16-member family from a flight destined for Saudi Arabia, alleging their involvement in begging activities.
The family, which included an infant, had reportedly obtained Umrah visas for their journey. The FIA’s investigation revealed that three travel agents had facilitated their travel arrangements, including accommodation and food in Saudi Arabia.
Disturbingly, it was disclosed that half of the alms the family would receive during their begging activities in Saudi Arabia were to be handed over to the travel agents.
A spokesperson for the FIA confirmed that a case has been registered against all family members involved in this alleged begging operation. The authorities are taking strict measures to combat such illegal activities and exploitation by travel agents.
This incident sheds light on the importance of vigilant monitoring and enforcement to prevent such exploitation and illegal activities within the immigration and travel industry. The FIA’s actions demonstrate their commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of citizens and travelers alike.
