A man linked with Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) arrested for selling child pornography Sex to Norway and Sweden. The case was revealed with the help of Norwegian embassy in the country.
According to Dawn’s report, the 45-year-old suspect Saadat Amin confessed that he had been selling child pornograpy content online for the last few years. Amin lured children on the pretext of imparting computer education. He even paid between 30 and 50 USD to the parents of the victims, saying that their children would learn computer skills at his one-room rented workshop in Sargodha.
Pakistani police launched the investigation after Norwegian Embassy in Pakistan sent them a letter informing that Norway police had arrested a Norwegian man in connection with the child pornographic content and that Saadat Amin was one of his accomplices in Pakistan.
A graduate of a University of Engineering and Technology Amin said to Dawn that he first was introduced to child pornography industry by his Norwegian client on the Internet.
– He offered me a deal asking me to sell him child pornographic content that I accepted. He would pay me between $100 and $400 for each video involving young boys. I used to sell not only my own recordings but also the video clips hacked from the servers of Russian and Bangladeshi porn websites to buyers in Norway and Sweden,” said Amin to Dawn.
