DERA GHAZI KHAN: The police claimed to have arrested an accused and recovered 1,415 illegal mobile phone SIMs along with other equipment used in the international voice traffic.
Addressing a press conference at Shuhda Hall at Police Lines here on Wednesday, DPO Hafiz Ghulam Mubashar Maikan said that on a tip-off, the City police had raided a house at Block No 51 where an illegal international gateway exchange was being run. He said that they had arrested Fareed Hussain involved in the cybercrime while his accomplices Issa Qureshi and Musa Qureshi, sons of Sagheer Qureshi, managed to escape. The DPO said that the accused had confessed to the crime. He added that the recovered SIMs and equipment were used in the illegal international voice traffic. He said that the accused had been running the illegal exchange for the last six months, which not only caused a loss of millions to the national exchequer but also terrorists were being facilitated for making calls through the exchange because national as well as international calls made through such an exchange were impossible to trace. City DSP Muhammad Nasrullah Warraich, DSP Organised Crimes Masood Ashar, City SHO Malik Liaquat Ali and other police officers were also present.
