Traders urge BVS for issuing new SIMs.
He said that extorting cases could be reduced by a significant number through eliminating illegal SIMs as due to illegal SIMs it was very easy for extortionists to contact traders, threat them and demand extortion because they know that it would not be easy for law enforcing agencies to detect them because SIMs they used were not registered on their name. He said that now when National Data Base and Registration Authority (NADRA) had finalized BVS for issuing new SIMs, all mobile phone companies should be strictly bound to use it and also deactivate all unregistered and suspected SIMs issued earlier. To a question, he said that presently in most of extorting cases, illegal SIMs were being used as the criminals consider it easy and a safe for them.
