Taking advantage of the lack of a jammer, the prisoners at Mandoli appear to be doing free blackmail, filing complaints, making videos and sharing them with contacts in the glory of the unwavering 4G.
Mandoli Prison in Delhi (which has housed more than 3,000 inmates) operates without interference from mobile phone signals, as the prison administration is still waiting for 4G interference. Administrators at Mandoli Prison (opened to prisoners in 2016 to ease congestion at Tihar Prison in Delhi) confirmed that they had not installed a single jammer.
