The green-eyed ‘Afghan girl’ who rose to global fame when a 1985 issue of National Geographic magazine published a haunting picture of her on its cover, was arrested in Peshawar on Tuesday.

Sharbat Gula was arrested by the FIA from the Nothia area for illegally possessing a Pakistani ID card.

Three National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) officials were also suspended for allegedly issuing her the ID card illegally.

Sharbat Gula, now in her 40s, was being investigated for the past few years by the Pakistani authorities who had discovered she was living in the country with fraudulent identity documents, Geo News reported.
