Lahore: FIA Arrests Two Bank Robbers wanted by the US
The United States had announced head money of $3 million for their arrest on the recommendations of the FBI.
The Federal Investigation Agency and the Lahore police have arrested two international criminals wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in a robbery case.
The Pakistani citizens, Mohsin Zameer and Waqar Ghumman were arrested from Lahore when they were stealing money from the ATM of a bank in Bahria Town. Mohsin was an IT expert while Waqar was a truck driver in the US.
The United States had announced head money of $3 million for their arrest on the recommendations of the FBI, a principal federal law enforcement agency of America.
The Director of the FIA Lahore, Abdul Rab, said that both the alleged criminals managed to flee the US after the FBI issued their arrest warrants one-and-a-half years ago. The FBI had uploaded the criminal record of both the suspects on national and international websites to seek help for their arrest.
“Both the criminals are wanted for their alleged involvement in an armed bank robbery, which occurred on the 8th of January, 2016 in Tonawanda, New York,” Abdul Rab said while reading an international alert notice of the FBI.
He said that the FIA is currently interrogating the culprits and did not mention whether they will be handed over to the United States.
