Raja Umar Khattab informed that unidentified people conduct false telephone call and they inform the citizens about (fake) arrest of their brother, nephew or maternal nephew.
The criminals inform the people that the police has arrested your relative on drug charges or with a girl or any other crime and they pass on phone to another person of their group in disguise of relative of a person on the phone who while heavily crying appeals to his relative to let him freed.
