HeadlinesRashid proposes registration of cases against CEOs of mobile phone companies

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervez Rashid on Wednesday proposed registration of cases against the CEOs of the mobile phone companies whose SIMs are being used in acts of terrorism.

A meeting of the Standing Committee on Interior Affairs was held under the chair of Senator Talha Mehmood in Islamabad on Wednesday, during which the information minister said that use of illegal SIMs is giving rise to the security issues.


The information minister said that mobile phone companies were equally responsible for the bloodshed being carried out in the country through bomb blasts.

The Director General NADRA told the committee that voters’ list data was also being used for obtaining illegal SIMs. He said that fingerprints would be taken and compared with NADRA data for issuance of mobile phone SIMs.

On the occasion, the Director General National Crisis Management told the meeting that many mobile phones were being used without IMEI number in the country.
