Tihar Central Jail in Janakpuri

New Delhi,  Delhi Cabinet Minister Satyendar Jain on Thursday said the jammers in the Tihar Central Jail in Janakpuri will be improved so that people living in nearby areas will not suffer because of it.

Jain made the statement during the Monsoon session of the Delhi Assembly when Aam Aadmi Party MLA Rajesh Rishi complained that jammers installed in the Tihar are not working inside the jail but is affecting the people living nearby.

“The jammers installed in the jail are not affecting the signals of phones used inside the jails. But the people living nearby are affected. They are not able to use their phones,” Rishi, the Janakpuri MLA, said.

Responding to his complaint, Jain directed the officials to look into the matter.

“I will also try to improve the quality of the jammers soon so that it will have strong jamming power but only for a smaller area so that people will not be affected,” Jain informed the House.
