LAHORE – The arrested person is a member of a gang allegedly involved in running a “dirty campaign” on social media, said Clifton Superintendent of Police (SP) Suhaee Aziz, regarding the arrest of a man who had allegedly arranged the event called “Dirty Night (couple swapping)”.
It was scheduled to take place in Karachi’s Clifton area on November 3 while 44 persons marked themselves “going”, according to the Facebook event post. Moreover, 245 persons were marked as “interested”. This is quite a shocker for social media that is recovering from this event that was all over websites with it’s ad.
An officer confirmed, “Boat Basin police have arrested a suspect, Arslan Qamar, who runs a ‘dirty night’ (couple swapping) campaign through social media”.
The person had been scamming people with such fake events. He had taken 25,000 each from “victims” who were planning on attending the event for a “dirty night”.
The police registered a First Information Report (FIR) against the suspect under Section 420/25-D of Telegraph Act, while efforts were underway to arrest his accomplices.
SP Aziz said the arrest was part of the police’s recently launched campaign titled “rescuing youth, saving future”.
This campaign will be running to save the youths from drugs, sheesha smoking, misuse of social media, gambling, one-wheeling, and bike racing.
