New Delhi: Four years after the country launched the fourth-generation cellular service, prison inmates have increasingly used mobile phones and decided to upgrade their jammer system from 3G to 4G. Because prisoners are known to use 4G SIM cards to make VoIP calls and keep in touch with employees, jammers installed in prisons that block 3G signals are no longer practical.
Sandeep Goel, the director general (prison) who took office last month, said that part of his goal is to stop the use of mobile phones in prisons, which is a matter of great concern to the Delhi police. Earlier this year, a Rohini businessman even received a WhatsApp video call from Tihar prisoner Rahul Kala, demanding payment of 5 million rupees. Kara also sent him the photo he clicked with Don Neeraj Bawana. The police followed up the prison and submitted a report to the prison authorities. Later investigations even found that some criminals used WiFi to make calls in prison.
The prison has more surprise inspections. The Tihar authorities have found a high-end mobile phone in the cell of the former minister of Haryana, Om Prakash Chotara. “Prisoners who use mobile phones in prisons are a concern for the police and prison authorities we want to stop. In addition to better gps jammer, we will also strengthen patrols and ensure that the routes for making mobile phones are connected and connected,” Goel told TOI .
The device is also installed in Mandoli and Rohini prisons, where there are currently no signal jammers. The senior prison authorities are required to develop plans to purchase and install these jammers. In addition to the misuse of mobile phones in Delhi prisons, all the 16 major prisoners met and asked them to increase the frequency of surprise inspections. A special team has been set up to check the equipment thrown into the detention center by outsiders. According to sources, employees of famous criminals put part of their mobile phones in rubber balls and put them in prison. These are collected and organized by criminals. They usually use standard SIM cards to make calls and destroy them later. The prison authorities will also coordinate with the Delhi police to monitor the prison phone and locate the caller.
