DG FIA Takes Notice Of ‘Assault’ On Female Passengers At Islamabad Airport


Director General (DG) Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) Amlish Khan on Wednesday took notice of the alleged assault of two female passengers by an FIA official at Benazir Bhutto International Airport.

According to the FIA report on the incident, Haseena Begum, along with her two daughters, was on her way to Norway last week when she complained to an FIA official about the lack of toilet paper in the restrooms.

When the officer rudely refused to help her, Haseena chastised her and slapped the official. The passengers were confronted by FIA official Nausheeba who retaliated by assaulting Haseena and her daughter.

Footage of the assault showing the FIA official slapping the passengers as bystanders looked on made the rounds on social media.

Following the incident, both parties filed cases against each other.

On Wednesday Haseena Begum’s father submitted a written apology, while director FIA suspended the female official.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan took notice of the incident and asked for a report on the incident.
