On the same subject, across the border in India a man is found with 80,000 SIMs.
Rohan Samarajiva at LIRNEasia writes:
A man in Mumbai’s suburb Thane region was found with 80,000 Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards. The SIM cards were found at the residence of Anwar Ansari, in Bhiwandi area of Thane.
According to reports, Mr Ansari used to run a racket that facilitated international calls. Mr Ansari has been arrested and the police say they are investigating the case further.
