The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has started legal action against Adnan Rasheed for operating an illegal educational institution. The accused was arrested on Monday in the E-11 area of Islamabad.
According to a spokesperson from the FIA, the person in custody had established an unlicensed organization called the “Technical Board and Training Council Islamabad”. He was found issuing fake nursing and engineering diplomas and degree certificates, which could have a negative impact on the prospects of the younger generation.
As per the FIA official, the offender was operating a well-planned fraudulent activity involving multiple printing presses.
In addition, the group had been issuing fake receipts for weapons that were not purchased in collaboration with arms dealers. The accused had also created fraudulent websites and social media accounts in the name of the fake technical institute.
During the operation, the FIA officials discovered numerous forged technical degrees, nursing certifications, fraudulent licenses issued by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), and weapon receipts from the suspect.
Moreover, during the operation conducted at the accused’s office, the law enforcement officials discovered several counterfeit seals of government entities, education boards, embassies, foreign agencies, and notary public.
Upon further investigation, it was revealed that the accused were charging unreasonable fees from students under the pretext of online admissions.
The FIA has lodged a complaint against five individuals, including Adnan Rasheed, the suspect. The spokesperson stated that the team is currently conducting operations to arrest the remaining accomplices.
