FIA Foils attempted begging operation: 16-member ‘Beggar family’ intercepted at Multan airport.

The Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) took decisive action at Multan International Airport, offloading a 16-member family allegedly bound for Saudi Arabia for begging purposes.

The family, including an infant, had obtained Umrah visas, and FIA uncovered arrangements made by three travel agents for their stay and sustenance in Saudi Arabia. The agents stipulated that half of the alms received by the family should be given to them.

A case has been registered against all family members, as announced by the FIA spokesperson.
