Pakistani police urges mobile users to report handset theft

Friday 23 January 2015 | 13:03 CET | News
The Pakistani Police has asked Warid, Zong, Ufone, Telenor and Mobilink customers to immediate report mobile phone theft at emergency number 15. The measure seeks to ensure that terrorists do not use stolen mobile phones and SIMs to coordinate or plan terrorist attacks, Pakistan Tribe reports. Mobile phone owners are also urged to block SIMs on their stolen mobile phones immediately. All mobile phone customers across Pakistan must authenticate their SIMs by end-February. Unregistered SIMs will be blocked after that date.
