Earlier in 2020, Assistant Director of FIA Cyber Crime Wing, Asif Iqbal was reportedly suspended and removed. At the time, a notice circulated pertaining to the suspension claimed that FIA had removed its Assistant Director for setting up a personal account on Twitter, without having sought permission from the higher authorities of the government department. According to details from 2020, Iqbal had been suspended for posting messages to raise awareness and disseminating information about Cyber Crime without permission, considered to be a breach of inter-department discipline. 

However, Asif Iqbal had claimed that he had been removed from office, not for the purpose stated in the notice, but for his tweet regarding Iman Mazari, daughter of the then Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari, which he had posted some days prior to his suspension. Iqbal reiterated that it is our duty to inform the public about the use and misuse of social media. What kind of action has been taken against work done in the public interest? He had questioned at the time.
