ISLAMABAD: The capital city police have arrested a Russian lady wearing a police uniform who tried to enter the diplomatic enclave in Islamabad.

Islamabad police have obtained judicial remand of Russian woman and sent her to jail on Friday.

According to Secretariat police, the Russian lady was produced in court which sent her to jail on judicial remand on Friday.

Interestingly, the same woman was also arrested in Multan for roaming in the city’s restricted areas.

Police said the lady was brought to Islamabad by the Multan police on Jan 4 and she was taken to the Russian embassy, but she refused to stay there and then police shifted her to a local hotel.

Why was she wearing police uniform and what prompted her to penetrate into the highly-secured red-zone _ diplomatic enclaves in Islamabad? These aspects of the case are under investigation, police said.

Police officials further disclosed that the female directed land in Multan from Russia on Dec 30 on 15-day visa and she stayed at a hotel without informing the area police.

During initial questioning, Russian lady informed the police that she was looking for her Facebook friend, Abdullah, in Multan and wanted to meet him

Nevertheless, when Multan police traced the man, he denied any link with the Russian woman, resultantly, the police informed her about the man’s response.

Later on, Multan police informed the Russian embassy about the woman and brought her to Islamabad on Jan 4 on the request of Embassy. Woman, however, refused to stay in the embassy/diplomats and she was shifted to a local hotel. Later, she was taken to the Secretariat police station and handed over by the Multan police.

This story does not end here and takes an interesting twist as she went to bathroom of Secretariat police station, where she found the police uniform. She wore it, walked out of the police station conveniently and reached her hotel.

On the following day she moved to the Diplomatic Enclave in the hotel’s car wearing police uniform and tried to enter the premises. However, she was intercepted at Gate No. 1, and once again she was handed over to area police.

Police said the Foreign Office and the Russian embassy have been informed about registration of the case against the woman and her detention in Adiala jail. She can be deported next week.

Islamabad police officials have sought explanation from the Secretariat police station from where the Russian lady got police uniform and then moved away.

Meanwhile, a police spokesman, in a statement, said the Russian woman had arrived in Multan on Thursday and the Multan police handed her over to the first secretary of the Russian embassy.

The embassy accommodated the woman and wrote to the Foreign Office to revoke her visa, he added.

The first information report (FIR) stated that the woman, wearing police uniform, reached Gate No. 1 of the Diplomatic Enclave. She was intercepted at the gate and on inquiry she introduced herself as Christiana but she failed to give a satisfactory reply for wearing Islamabad police uniform.

According to FIR, Christiana tried to resist when the police stopped her from entering the Diplomatic Enclave. She was impersonating herself as an official of the capital police.
