‘Couldn’t sell Pakistan’: The fascinating story of a Karachi street criminal turned FBI spy

He served Pakistani political parties for some time but was grounded with life dangers and threats, for which his family arranged a confidential trip for Faridi to fly to Sweden.


Kamran Faridi, the FBI’s most valued secret agent, was sentenced to 7 years in jail as he was abandoned by the FBI secret team for refusing to lie about Pakistan during one of his interrogations.
Born and brought up in Karachi, Kamran Faridi served as a United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) secret agent after completing his schooling at Ali Ali School and graduating from a renowned university in Pakistan.
Earlier back, the guy had close relations with Pakistan Student Federation (PSF) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which led him to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
He served Pakistani political parties for some time but was grounded with life dangers and threats, for which his family arranged a confidential trip for Faridi to fly to Sweden.
He had quite a hard time in Sweden and was arrested several times for not working according to the terms of Swedish authorities. As a result, the authorities blacklisted him and canceled his visa.
As an illegal immigrant, Faridi had no other choice but to hide on an Island, which turned into a blessing in disguise. He got a fake passport with the help of Greenpeace activists. From that, he started his new life in Newyork city, where he reported to the FBI of a violent group of people bribing him for his gas station.


FBI saw value in Faridi’s fluent command of Urdu, Punjabi, and Hindi in 1996 and offered him a job as full-time information and agent.
He wholeheartedly served the US FBI for more than two decades and played a significant role in collecting confidential information about Abu Jafar, Al-Agha, Jabir Motiwala, Dawood Ibrahim, Chota Shakeel, and others.
The turning point occurred when Farid was allegedly told to sign false testimony that would prove a group of Pakistani individuals involved in the procurement of nuclear technology, working or leading a Pakistani spy agency.
On this, Faridi denied lying and refused to cooperate. As a consequence, his contract with the US FBI was immediately revoked, and he received death threats at the time when his wife Jelly was struggling with cancer.
Faridi is shattered and says, “I served the US wholeheartedly, but I have been rewarded with a jail sentence and removed from long service because I refused to lie about Pakistan.
All he hopes for now is justice and plans to shift to Pakistan as soon as he’s out of prison.
