Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) assistant director was arrested Thursday for sexually assaulting a foreign traveler at Islamabad airport.
According to details, the officer was suspended from the duties while a First Information Report (FIR) was also registered against him.
The developments came after Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar took notice of the incident and ordered a detailed probe into it.
According to the FIR, the complainant accused the official of sexually harassing her at the airport when she, along with her sister, arrived there from Afghanistan.
As per Dawn.com report, the woman alleged that they were taken by FIA officials to a secluded room at the airport where they were made to wait for five hours.
