Sexual Harassment wanted by UK arrested
Choudhry Ikhalaq Hussain was captured amid a joint task between the Federal Investigation Agency, the Punjab Police and the UK’s National Crime Agency in Sangla City in Punjab on Saturday January26.
In 2016, Hussain was condemned in the UK to 19 years detainment for genuine sexual offenses against a youngster. Hussain was discovered blameworthy of three tallies of sexual action with a kid, two checks of assault and one tally of scheme to assault. This pursued a long running Greater Manchester Police examination – named Operation Doublet – which investigated the sexual misuse of high school young ladies in Rochdale.
Hussain fled to Pakistan amid the preliminary, yet was discovered blameworthy in absentia. The UK has been working intimately with Pakistan’s experts since 2017 to anchor his capture and removal.
Hussain’s capture is a further operational accomplishment for the UK-Pakistan equity and responsibility organization set up amid the British Home Secretary’s visit to Pakistan in September 2018. The association incorporates a reestablished responsibility to handle the common dangers of sorted out wrongdoing and universal guiltiness between our two nations.
“The arrest of this individual, who has been convicted of sexual offences by a British court, is a significant achievement, and another excellent example of UK-Pakistan cooperation in tackling international criminality and impunity,” said British High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew CMG “It sends a clear message that Pakistan is not a safe haven for international criminals.” He thanked the Federal Investigation Agency and the Punjab Police for their professionalism and dedication in the execution of this operation.
Choudhry Ikhalaq Hussain’s case will now go to courts, who will decide whether to approve his extradition to the UK. In October 2018, Shahid Mohammad, an individual wanted in connection with the murder of five children and three adults, was successfully extradited to the UK.
