He alleged that the accused persons are alleging him for renting out the property of NPC Islamabad for commercial usage by putting dubious signatures of mine on fake agreement/letter about which I have no information.

“The accused persons have uploaded the fake agreement/letter prepared on fake letterhead of NPC Islamabad and have pasted the fake signatures of mine over there. They are continuously defaming and disgracing me for baseless allegations.

Reply is still awaited to this effect, stated FIA in the FIR.

It further stated that Naseem Khan was summoned who joined the inquiry proceedings and stated that:

“I am doing my food business in Islamabad since long. I used to visit NPC Islamabad where I met one namely Rana Imran who introduced himself as a journalist. We became friends after some meetings.

Afterwards he asked me that NPC Islamabad can provide a piece of land of NPC Islamabad on lease basis to me for outdoor/indoor café-tea/coffee Restaurant.

Since I am engaged in this business so I accepted his offer. Rana Imran received Rs2.4 million cash and Rs1.574 million through bank transaction on the pretext of processing fee for purpose of leasing the land.

Rana Imran handed over fake photocopy Challan worth rupees 1.2 million of National  Bank of Pakistan in favour of CDA in this regard and original letter reference number 1339 dated 29-08-2019 on letterhead of NPC Islamabad with subject, Approval for Layout Plan, with scanned signature of Shakeel Qarar, along with his stamp.

Rana Imran received total Rs3.974 million. But so far neither land has been handed over to me nor has my money been returned.

According to FIA the original fake letter and copy of Challan of NBP worth Rs1.2 million has been taken from Naseem Khan through seizure memo. This fake, altered, tempered, forged letter was used for defamation and damaged the repute of applicant by uploading and disseminating through mentioned URLs.

Case has been registered again Rana Imran Aslam. Role of other involved persons, if any be thrashed out during investigation.

Mazhar Ali Shah, Inspector FIA, Cybercrime Reporting Centre Islamabad is investigating the case.
