ISLAMABAD: In a bid to curb the menace of illegal Indian DTH proliferating in Pakistan, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) regional office Karachi held a ceremony to destroy more than 200 illegal Indian Direct to Home (DTH) decoders confiscated by the regional office. The decoders were confiscated during the crackdowns against cable TV operators of Karachi, Hyderabad and Sukkur, said a press release issued here Tuesday. In the on-going drive during four months, PEMRA enforcement teams have confiscated and destroyed about 3,000 illegal DTH decoders across the country. Similar ceremonies to destroy those equipment were held at Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. PEMRA while briefing the media said that the crackdown has been launched against cable TV operators providing cable TV services by using signal of illegal Indian DTH in violation of PEMRA laws.
