Pak plans 'cyber patrol wing' to deal with child pornography
Lahore: Pakistan's top security and investigative agency has proposed to set up a fully-equipped 'cyber patrol wing' to deal with the child pornography rings in the country. Presently, there is no team at any Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) office working full time to track down the suspects involved in selling or uploading pornographic material online.
"So far three cases of child pornography have been traced either on tip-offs from inside the country or outside of it. We do not have any other mechanism to track down the suspects involved in this heinous crime. The child pornography rings are operating here and to nab them we need a dedicated cell equipped with latest soft-wares," says FIA senior officer Usman Anwar. He said the child pornography rings are moving to the developing countries because of 'easy and cheap market' here.
"To deal with them we have proposed to the federal government that a 'cyber patrol wing', comprising a dedicated team of FIA personnel equipped with the latest software, be set up without any further delay. The FIA teams will do 24/7 patrolling on Internet.
