SIM Lost JailYou must have seen this TVC on various TV channels featuring a 10 year student who tells the teacher that his father is in jail – because his lost SIM was (mis)used by criminals.

Majority of us don’t take this awareness ad seriously. I am saying this because there are still millions of inactive SIMs that are in our names but we don’t use them. They are either misplaced, blocked, given to cousins or their cousins, stored in our drawers etc. but are not in our use.

These SIMs (in your name), if get into wrong hands and are used for any criminal activity then you can get in real trouble. No will listen your justifications of lost SIMs or anything. You will be straight away put behind the bars.

Sania, a student of 1st year pre-engineering, is one of such unfortunates whose SIM was lost and was used in a murder and consequently she was taken into custody by Police and was put in a Jail.

This, seemingly a bright, teenage student has already spent two months in a Jail for a crime she never committed. Her only sin was that she didn’t get her SIM blocked after she had lost it.

This can happen with you as well, if your old SIMs are not taken care of.

So here is chance for you to get all your old in-active SIMs – that are not in use or those that were registered against your name without your consent – to get blocked.

You can SMS your CNIC number to 668 to know the number of SIMs issued against their CNICs. Alternatively, you can also visit PTA website to check number of SIMs issued against their CNIC.

Do this today, or there may never be a tomorrow.

This is especially advised at a time when you can’t have more than 5 SIMs on one CNIC.

Here is the video of this ARY show that was shot at a central Jail featuring Sania. Look at her innocence, conditions she is in and the misery that took her to Jail.
