With no local presence signal of Pak mobile networks in border areas of Rajouri, Poonch

Early Times Report

Poonch, July 10: Several forward areas of Poonch, Rajouri, districts are receiving mobile network signals of Pakistan while the Government of India does not have any policy to check/counter it, which is a security threat for the country.
According to the reports, numerous villages located in the range of 0-5 kilometre of LoC in Poonch, Rajouri, districts receive strong signals of Pakistan cellular companies like WaridTel, Jazz ,41005 and Telenor Pk.
In Poonch district, right from Bhimber Gali to Krishna Ghati, almost all forward villages are getting strong Pakistan signals. Moreover, what shocks one is that in about one dozen forward villages of Mendhar and Balakote tehsils of Poonch, there is no presence of Indian cellular companies including BSNL.
“Villages of Balakote sector like Panjnani, Suhala, Baruti, Darati, Dabbi, Deri Dabsi and many other nearby villages, which constituted a population of about 15,000 to 20,000, have no presence of Indian cellular companies,” said a local resident of village Baruti. He said the Pakistan mobile signals in their territory poses serious threat to our security forces as it gives advantage to the infiltrators from across the border.
“Taking advantage of Pak network, terrorists can easily contact their masters sitting across the border,” he said adding, it is quite shocking that neither the administration nor security agencies are bothered and that too when the issue is of national security. Another villager said that whenever they searched for mobile network, their mobile phones detect network signals from Pakistan cellular companies while there is no signal of BSNL and other Indian private cellular companies.
“However, the situation was different about some months back as BSNL was providing network coverage to these areas by CDMA technology,” he said, adding, there were about 500 to 600 Wireless Local Loops (WLLs) installed by BSNL from Bhimber Gali to Krishna Ghati but all these communication systems were suddenly removed by the company without making any alternate arrangement.
