Illegal Gateway Exchange Seized in Lahore

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA : NR3C) Lahore jointly conducted a successful raid in Lahore and arrested a person who was running illegal gateway exchanges.

Illegal voice termination activity was detected at 260-A, BOR Society, Johar Town Lahore and a raid was conducted after investigations.

Illegal Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) exchanges comprising eight GSM gateways of 16 ports and two gateways of eight ports, SIMs, and other equipment was confiscated.

The action is expected to save millions of rupees in loss being incurred due to illegal termination of voice calls by the exchange.

The national exchequer is losing millions of dollars due to increased grey trafficking activities. It is a positive sign to see that the concerned officials are working to curb these illegal activities, hopefully more such actions will be taken to eliminate grey trafficking from the country.
