The official said the FIA received secret information that some agents were involved in preparation of fake passports and CNICs. On receiving information, FAI Deputy Director Muhammad Ahmad formed a team. The team raided the passport and Nadra offices and arrested Shakeel who was involved in preparation of fake CNICs and passports. The team also recovered 18 passports, stamps and CNIC receipts from accused possession. A case has been registered against him and the investigation is underway.
