    The law enforcement officers were conducting a visit to the broker who is alleged to be dealing in illegal trading of FX. Pakistan’s regulator the SECP (Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan) does not classify FX as a regulated asset class.

    The authorities visited the premises without a warrant and upon arrival were beaten by staff at the brokerage. Five members of the team were taken to hospital with severe injuries.
