Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has launched a crackdown against people involved in promoting banned outfit Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) on social media platforms.
The FIA teams have become active after the federal government has decided to crackdown against the banned outfit over violent clashes in Punjab that led to the martyrdom of four cops and injuring dozens of others.
According to sources, the FIA teams have conducted raids against the banned outfit’s elements involved in sharing inflammatory content on social media.
