LAHORE, Pakistan: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) Zonal Office Lahore, in close collaboration with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Cyber Crime Circle, conducted successful raid against franchisee of a mobile phone company located in Lahore.
This franchisee was found to be involved in the illegal issuance of SIMs.
During the raid, four BVS devices and two laptops were seized as evidence and three persons were also apprehended on the premises by the FIA team. The FIA is currently investigating the matter further.
