PTA Raid on VOIP Grey Setup

Islamabad (29th January, 2024): Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) along with Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) conducted a successful raid against the grey trafficker at NESPAK Housing Society, Lahore.

During the raid, 188 Active SIMs, 09 VoIP Gateways (32 ports), 05 Laptop and 2 Network Switches were recovered. Two persons have been arrested at the spot. FIA is further investigating the matter.

The successful raid against the illegal setup is a part of PTA’s efforts to prevent the circumvention of the Multi-Finger Biometric Verification System (MBVS) and is made possible because of continuous monitoring, commitment and persistent efforts by PTA in curbing the menace of grey traffic thus curtailing the loss to the national exchequer.
