Sarim Burney, a rights activist, was the subject of a first information report (FIR) filed by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for allegedly smuggling newborns into the US.

The rights activist was charged by the investigative body with “trafficking” a newborn child, Haya, into the United States. Haya was purportedly purchased from her parents for Rs. 1 million, and the FIA claims that she was the last child trafficked to the United States.

Under the guise of adoption, Sarim Burney transported 20 infants into the United States in the last year. According to the FIA, 15 of the kids that were trafficked were girls.

The Pakistani embassy supplied the FIA with the records of the children who were allegedly trafficked, the agency stated in a statement. Burney’s wife was also among them, the agency claimed, citing the Trust documents.
