Thousands of prepaid mobile subscribers in the Kashmir Valley were stumped on Thursday as vendors declined to recharge their connections on the police direction for proper verification of the phone users before each recharge.

Srinagar: Thousands of prepaid mobile subscribers in the Kashmir Valley were stumped on Thursday as vendors declined to recharge their connections on the police direction for proper verification of the phone users before each recharge.

"We have been told to maintain registers with complete details of those prepaid subscribers who approach us with recharge requests," said Abdul Majid, a vendor in mobile phone recharge.

The local police have recently issued directions to telecom service providers in the Kashmir Valley to maintain records of those recharging their prepaid phones from time to time.

"This has been done to prevent misuse of prepaid cell connections in the valley. The service providers have been asked to furnish to us details of various recharges made through them every fortnight," Ashaq Hussain Bukhari, Senior Superintendent of Police of Srinagar district, told IANS.

"This has also been done in case of renewal of Internet connections here", Bukhari added.

Earlier, SMS service was banned in Jammu and Kashmir on prepaid phones, which is still operational, while in 2010 all the prepaid cell phone services were temporarily withdrawn in the state citing security reasons.
