The State Department is offering up to $2 million in rewards for information about a Pakistani national and his alleged human smuggling network, which the government says is used to smuggle illegal immigrants into the United States from the Middle East and Southwest Asia.
In a release, the State Department said that Khan allegedly operated a smuggling network based in Pakistan that moves individuals into the United States from the Middle East and southwest Asia for money. Khan is also alleged to have offered or provided false travel documents for those seeking entry into the U.S.
The Department of Justice unsealed an indictment in April charging him with encouraging and inducing an alien to unlawfully enter the U.S., and bringing an alien to the U.S. He was also sanctioned by the Department of Treasury as part of orders to block transnational criminal organizations.
