PATNA: Two senior telecommunication department officials had to spend their night at a police station after the mobile networks of Jharkhand chief minister Raghubar Das didn’t work on Monday, forcing him to go offline.
The chief minister had reached the Dumka town to have interaction with the local villagers on Monday. After his busy day schedule, he made the night stay at the local government guest house.
Once settled there, he took out his cell phone to check out any messages but got annoyed after finding no network of the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), state-owned telecommunication company, on his mobile.
Reports said an angry Das soon called up his official to get the BSNL officials presented before him then and there. Instantly, two senior BSNL officials, PK Singh and Sanjeev Kumar, came rushing to him at night but failed to satisfy the chief minister about the failure of the BSNL mobile networks by their answers.
An indignant chief minister ordered both the officials to be jailed. Subsequently, the police took both the telecommunication department officials to the local Dumka police station where they had to pass almost the whole night sitting there.
Both stayed at the police station in between 12 PM to 3 AM. Eventually, they were allowed to go home though no case was registered against them, police said.
“We took the BSNL officials to the police station to for questioning and let them off after completing the basic formalities,” a local police official Deobrat Poddar has told the local media.
