The FIA officials said that the officials of FIA’s counter-terrorism wing have arrested Junaid during a raid conducted in Dohraji area of the metropolis.

The suspect was involved in distributing money among the anti-state elements and Indian spies through hawala and hundi network. Moreover, the raiding team also recovered a laptop and mobile phone from his possession.

According to the IP address most of the e-mails were sent to New Delhi, from where a man named Mehmood Siddiqui was giving tasks.
