LAHORE – Federal investigators have arrested as many as eight Chinese nationals accused of trafficking Pakistani girls to China and forcing them into prostitution.

The gang members were taken under arrest after the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) officials carried out an operation on the orders of Director General Bashir Memon, said spokesman FIA Jameel Mayo.

Meo further added that the investigative agency raided a local housing society near Lahore airport, under the supervision of Director Zone II Rustam Chauhan.

The suspects arrested on Monday include Wang Hao, Shoi Sheli, Wong Yhazou, Chang Shail Rai, Pan Khowajay, Wang Bao, Zaothi and Kaindisko.

On Thursday, FIA in an intelligence-based operation raided a wedding ceremony in Faisalabad and arrested the Chinese groom who has been identified as Chang.

Zahid, a Christian father; Kashif, a matchmaking agent; Mendes, a Chinese woman; and others were also taken into custody in the raid.
