Cell Phone Jammers In Indian Prison
Bihar authorities on Thursday said that the offer to place cell phone blockers in Bihar jails would not be efficient. Even the phone signal jammer set in Delhi's Tihar prison isn't efficient, said the water funds development minister in the Bihar law-making council during the session.
Mobile phone issues in Indian prisons
The minister was answering a CPI representative's question related to intimidating phone calls being made from prisons to people for ransom. Chaudhary commented that the government could recover a few portable groups from Bihar jails because of frequent raids in prisons.
Earlier, the authorities had invited global tenders for placing jammers' cell phones in Bihar prisons. Connoisseurs had made presentations, but they turned out to be inefficient. Lately, the minister commented that Jharkhand cell phone jamming devices hadn't turned out to be efficient in tackling Maoist attacks. Connoisseurs from Bihar were sent to Delhi to reconsider the functioning of jammers' cell phones in Tihar prison. But they were not found working correctly, the minister reported. He said the authorities wished to place cell phone jammers to ban intimidating phone calls from prison for ransom. But it has become challenging because of quick progress in cell phone technology.
"We have tested cell phone jamming devices here in Beur main jail. While it yielded inside the prison beliefs, people living in close regions began complaining about their cell phone system breakdown", the minister reported.
