A Lahore district and sessions court sent 11 Chinese nationals involved in fake marriages with Pakistan girls to prison on a 14-day judicial remand on Monday.

The suspects were charged with blackmailing and forcing Pakistani girls after marriage in China into indecent activities.

After two days of physical remand, the accused was brought before the court by the Federal Investigation Agency. The hearing was conducted by Judicial Magistrate Amir Raza.

The FIA submitted to the court an investigation report revealing that the suspects worked in the form of an organized group with the assistance of Pakistani agents.

The Chinese men married Pakistani girls and later forced them into prostitution, the report said.

Let it be known that 13 suspects were arrested by the FIA on May 8, including 11 Chinese nationals. There are already two Pakistanis – Shaukat Ali and Muhammad Ansar – on judicial remand.
