Misuse of SIMs cards across border still rampant

Gelephu police received information from police in the neighbouring district of Assam, India, that a Bhutanese SIM card was being used to make ransom calls in a kidnapping case across the border.

Although both the abductor and abductee was Indian national, the ransom calls were made from a Bhutanese SIM card from the Indo-Bhutan border near Sarpang.

Gelephu police officials said they found that the SIM card belongs to a monk in Trongsa, who claimed that he lost the SIM card three years ago.
