FIA arrests four for illegal issuance of SIMs

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), in collaboration with Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), carried out another successful raid, against illegal activation of SIMs, at two franchisees of a mobile company in Rawat and arrested four suspects on Tuesday.

During the raid, besides apprehending four suspects, Biometric Verification System (BVS) devices, silicon thumbs, original CNICs and SIM cards were confiscated. Further investigation is underway at FIA. Earlier, PTA had filed a complaint with FIA based upon information regarding suspicious issuance of SIMs at the sale channels.

The raids are part of PTA’s efforts to actively prevent attempts to circumvent the Multi-Finger Biometric Verification System (MBVS). This demonstrates PTA’s determination and persistent efforts in stopping illegal issuance of SIMs.
