Pre-activated SIM card racket busted

Investigation into the threatening and abusive messages to women, led the police to a racket involved into sale of pre-activated SIM cards in the city.

Based on complaints lodged by some people that they are receiving threatening and abusive messages, the West Zone Team of Commissioner’s Task Force started investigations. However, the sleuths were shocked to find that a huge racket of pre-activated SIM cards was operating in the city. On Thursday, the police apprehended three persons - Anil Singh, Ritesh Singh and Shaik Imran who involved in the offence.

The police seized as many as 55 SIM Cards, 28 Applications and three cell phones from their possession.

According to police, the main accused Anil Singh, who runs a pan shop at Mangalhat, used to send threatening and abusive message to people, along with his friend Ritesh Singh. For this, Ritesh obtained four SIM cards from Shaik Imran without submitting any identity or address proofs.

Further investigations revealed that Shaik Imran with the encouragement of his dealer Hareesh Rakhee, owner of Nandini distributors, was involved in sale of SIM cards without collecting any required documents primarily to increase his sales. Imran used to make several copies of photo identity and address proofs of genuine innocent customers and submit the same to activate SIM-cards fraudulently. These pre-activated SIM cards used to be sold for a premium.

The Task Force team has handed over the accused and seized material to Mangalhat Police Station for further action.

Meanwhile, the City Police has warned the authorized dealer of SIM cards of all companies of stern action if they do not strictly follow the procedures of issuing SIM cards. (INN)

After returning to India, he started a consultancy in the name of Planet IT solutions at Himayatnagar, but he incurred loss and closed the same in one year.

    However, while running the consultancy he came into contact with several HR managers of IT companies. As he was facing financial problems due to unemployment he came into contact with one Murtuza Siddiqi who is also suffering with same problems. In order to come out of their financial problems they hatched a plan to cheat the managements of engineering colleges by conducting fake job fairs/campus placements and also the innocent job seekers on the pretext of providing employment in reputed software companies.

    In the month of August 2010, they conducted interview at residence of Murtuza Siddiqui at Tolichowki and issued fake appointment letters of reputed software companies like Genpact, Sietel, Wipro to Feroz, Zameer, Abdullah, Mahboob, Suresh and Sd.

After collecting Rs. 15,000/- each from 19 members, they gave fake appointment letter. They collected money ranging from Rs. 15,000/- to Rs. 25,000/- from each candidate.

    Film 'Happy Days' heroes in troubles

    2011/11/13 23:11:41 It seems that the Happy Days team running into “high” trouble one after the other.

    While it was the allegations of drugs on Varun Sandesh earlier, now it is Nikhil who failed the breather test and was booked in a drunk and drive case.

    It is a nice ploy for City Police to lay wait close to pubs to net the fish and the police drive is well organised. Only thing is late night parties and participants do not get the publicity Nikhil got as it was in the heart of the city and he was caught close to the pub.

    The police efforts notwithstanding, the police check-post armed with media, proved to be unlucky for Nikhil who has to appear before Nampally Criminal Court on Monday and his vehicle was seized.

    Earlier, it was the turn of Varun Sandesh who was named as a user by the peddlers who were arrested. The issue was swept under the carpet or may be pending due to some reason.

    Whenever drugs racket is busted, invariably a Nigerian is arrested and kin of politicians or film stars are involved. The matter gets buried. Ravi Teja’s brothers were also named as accused in drug peddling. The issue is never raked up later. (INN)
