Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Director General Sanaullah Abbasi on Monday said that an action has been initiated against individuals generating fake Covid vaccination certificates along with provincial departments.
Addressing a press conference, he said that the step was taken as per guidelines of the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) and over 41 people have been arrested and FIRs have been registered.
He said people who got certificates from these people were under probe by the FIA and the agency has called many of them and calling others as well.
The fake vaccination certificates have been cancelled and the FIA has been working with a complete tracking system to trace the people who were committing crime that could lead to death, the FIA DG said.
Abbasi said though the scale was very small as more than 75 million doses were administered so far this number was small. However, he said, people should beware of the fake vaccine generators.
He said these people were bringing embarrassment to the nation and the state as a whole. “I urge the nation to complete their families’ vaccination under the free nationwide inoculation programme as per law,” Abbasi said.
