LAHORE: Interior Minister Rehman Malik, after creating hype among the  prepaid mobile connection users in Pakistan, clarified on Saturday that the connections will not be blocked entirely, reported Express News.

“We did not say that the prepaid connections will be blocked, only the SIMs registered on fake identities will be blocked,” said Malik while speaking to the media at the inauguration of the Border Management System at Allama Iqbal Airport Lahore.

The interior minister also announced that the validity of passports will be increased from five to 10 years after September 15, while task forces will be deployed at airports to prevent bribery.

He also vowed to expose a list of those involved in terror activities and the details of money being received by them.

Malik added that an order has been given to shoot terrorists on sight who open fire at buses on the Karakoram Highway.
