Police in Faisalabad on Tuesday registered a case, first of its kind in the country, against three persons, including a woman, for allegedly sending threatening SMSs to a resident of the city. Khalid Mehmood had submitted an application with the additional district and sessions judge, Faisalabad that some unidentified persons were sending him threatening messages on the mobile phone. The court ordered Batala Colony Police to file a case against the culprits under Section 25-d of the Telegraph Act 1885. In his application, Khalid claimed that he received some SMSs on his mobile phone in which he was threatened of dire consequences. The FIR also contains this fact that the petitioners relations with his wife have been estranged for the last eight months. The applicant has also alleged that his wifes cousin, Khalid Pervez, and a woman namely Jamila Bibi have been sending him threatening SMSs. The police investigation officer said the claimant was asked to present proof in support of his claim but he has not turned up as yet. It merits to mention here that the said case has been filed ten days after the announcement by the Interior Ministry that the government would take action under the Cyber Crimes Act against all those who dare to send provocative and unethical SMSs or emails against the civilian leadership or security forces. The culprits would be given 14-year jail term and their property could also be confiscated under this act.
