GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 19: The residents of Kalai Ander in Shahr-e-Khaas have complained of poor mobile connectivity since past month when a fresh wave of protests erupted in the City after killing of teenager Tufail Ahmed Mattoo of Saida Kadal.
The residents of areas like HatiKhan, Khashkhash Pora and Kathi Darwaza localities said since June protests the mobile network remains affected most of the times.
“We are simply unable to make or revive calls on the cell phones as there is no network,” the residents said.
The locals accused the authorities at the adjoining Central Jail Srinagar of having expanded the network of jamming devices to render the entire area out of connectivity.
“Earlier only the colonies in the close proximity of the jail used to be affected by the jammers but now the entire Kalai Ander is affected,” the locals said.
They said even thought they picked up the issue with the telecom service providers, no respite came their way.
“In the absence of mobile connectivity we are facing immense inconvenience to stay in touch with others,” the locals said.
They appealed the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Naseema Lanker to look into the matter.
