    One such message says: ‘Attention: If you receive a call on your cellphone informing you that they are from quality control department of a GSM company and checking your line and they [terrorists] will also request you to press a specific key on your mobile phone, do not follow their instructions.

    ‘Your mobile can be hacked by them and may be used for any terrorist activity… like triggering a remote-controlled bomb blast…ISPR-Pak Army.’

    A senior military official told Dawn: ‘These are fake messages and we are investigating them.’

    An official of the Federal Investigation Agency’s cyber crime cell said his unit was also probing into the matter. He said strict action would be taken against the senders of these false messages and they would be booked under the Prevention of Electronic Crime Ordinance, 2008.
