Karnah police station inaccessible
1-YEAR ON, PHONE DEAD
Tangadhar, (Karnah) June 24: Call on Karnah police station number 01958-245240, pat comes the reply, “Please check the number you have dialed “kripya dial kiya number janch lein.”
Sources told Greater Kashmir the telephone has been defunct for the past one year. “Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) disconnected the number after police failed to clear the outstanding bill of more than Rs one lakh fifty thousand,” they added.
Residents said that they face immense hardships due to non-availability of telephone in the Police Station. “In case of any problem, we have to walk down to the police station to inform the cops. Our problems are compounded as we don’t have mobile facility here,” they added.
A top BSNL official said that on March 17, 2011, police station was provided with a temporary telephone number as police had assured the company that the outstanding amount would be paid. “But we had to disconnect the other number also as officials failed to fulfill their commitment,” he added.
When contacted, Superintendent of Police Kupwara V K Birdhi first said this is an administrative issue. “It is not an appropriate matter for me to speak on the issue,” he said.
