Radio Kashmir goes off air due to technical snag

Srinagar, Aug 27 (IANS) Radio Kashmir suddenly went off air on Saturday evening, fuelling strong speculations in the Valley till authorities clarified it was a technical snag in the station’s transmitter situated in city outskirts.

After some media persons contacted station director, Humayun Kaisar, he informed that the Narbal transmitter of Radio Kashmir had developed a technical snag, leading to transmission snapping.

The station director said a team of engineers had been rushed to locate the snag and rectify it so that transmission was resumed.

Speculations arose after the transmission failure of Prasar Bharati-run Radio Kashmir as separatists have asked people to march to Radio Kashmir and the local Doordarshan Kendra on September 1 to prevent employees entering.

Separatists have called “Radio Kashmir and the local Doordarshan Kendra part of India’s war machinery used for anti-Kashmiri propaganda”.
