Youth Arrested Over Highest Mobile Bill

By Indika Sri Aravinda

A 21-year-old youth has been arrested over the non-payment of a mobile bill to the value of over Rs. 3 million.

The youth was produced before the Fort Magistrate and released on bail, his lawyer told The Sunday Leader.

The mobile phone bill of the youth amounted to Rs. 3,212,454.87 and he was arrested last weekend following a complaint lodged by the mobile company.

The youth had obtained the mobile connection last month on a credit limit of Rs. 7,500 and a monthly rental of Rs. 96.77.  A resident of Digana, the youth had sent the mobile SIM to his brother-in-law in Italy but the SIM card had later gone missing.

The lawyer who appeared on behalf of the youth in the case said that they believed the SIM may have been used by someone after it was lost.

    Its well known in italy , that forign sim connections is sold to “communication centers” around the big cities such as Milano. Where the communcation centers have a special computer that fits hundreds of simcards. Which they use stolen connect the sri lankans calls to sri lanka ….And the centers dont pay a single rupee for these minutes…and when a sim is blocked they just connect another one…but still charge the customers to the communication centers full amount in EURO.

    A cock and bull story. How come the mobile company allowed the bill to mount to such a higher amount when the credit limit was just Rs 7500? Didn’t they monitor it? If they didn’t it is their fault. Anyway,it sounds like an April fools day story.
