4 Pakistanis arrested in connection with blasphemy charges

Staff Report

ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Friday (March 24) arrested three men who face accusations of publishing blasphemous content on social media, Dawn reported. The location of arrest was not reported.

Authorities have seized their laptops for forensic analysis.

The Interior Ministry earlier this week reported arresting another man in connection with such charges and putting several other individuals' names on the Exit Control List, which bars them from leaving Pakistan.

Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif earlier in March ordered the prosecution of those who post blasphemous content on social media.
