Bangladesh shuts down mobile services along Indian border

Dec 31, 2019 16:20 IST

Bangladesh’s telecom regulator has ordered operators to shut down services along the border with India. Citing security reasons, mobile network coverage has been suspended for areas falling within one kilometre along the entire border with India. In a statement on Monday, officials said the move has been made keeping in mind the 'current circumstances' in India. On the condition of anonymity an official told The Hindustan Times that the decision was taken out of concern that Indian Muslims might seek to enter Bangladesh after the passage of the CAA.
