Famous Pakistani TikToker Kashif Zameer has been arrested for allegedly duping Turkish actor Engin Altan into becoming the brand ambassador of his fake firm in Lahore.

Police said Zameer, known for his larger-than-life TikToks, had earlier invited Altan to Pakistan after sending a fake draft of a hefty amount to become the face of his ‘company’.

The Turkish star visited Pakistan and was hosted by dignitaries including Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, Tribune reported.

However, the deal turned out to be a sham as Zameer did not make any payments to Altan.

The Tiktoker was taken into custody after Altan filed a complaint before Inam Ghani, the Punjab top cop.

In the raid on Zameer’s residence, a car along with a green number plate and a revolving blue light were recovered.

Displaying the gold chains, rings, and other bling recovered from Zameer, a senior police officer said “all these items are fake.”

He said there were many other cases against Zameer, whose “actions have tainted the image of the country”.
