Next to the room where Shahida and Tayyaba sat, half a dozen computers whirred busily amid a snarl of wires—this was the cybercrime wing’s forensics lab. A word document was open on one of the computers: A report was being prepared on official letterhead. A technician watched another monitor as the system extracted data from a seized cell phone.
