PTA is reportedly planning to carry out a survey of jails in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for installation of signals jamming devices, to cut communication of the imprisoned criminals with their associates outside jails.
The KPK Govt has planned installation of jammers to check the use of cell phones by undesirable elements in jails and their surrounding areas, it was said in a statement issued by the provincial home department.
It said that the matter was discussed at a meeting attended by secretary home, special Secretary home, IG prisons, PTA authorities and other officers concerned.
The installation of jammers in KPK jails was approved bythe inter-ministerial committee in Dec 2011. The jamming devices would be installed in a few priority jails to be recommended by PTA, home department and jail authorities.
