Hathway files FIRs against illegal disruption in Pune
Hathway Cable & Datacom undertook stringent action against recent disruption of its services in Pune by lodging three FIRs in multiple police stations across the city. In a series of incidents recently, fibre optic cables of Hathway provided by Tata Teleservices were cut at multiple locations in the city by unknown parties leading to disruption of Hathway services and causing inconvenience to several Hathway customers.
Due to the fibre cuts, Hathway signals were disrupted and lost for around 4 to 6 hours during the crucial ICC World Twenty20 matches, including the semi-final encounter between India and West Indies, which led to huge consumer angst and created a lot of dissatisfaction to several Hathway customers. In a press note issued, Hathway stated that the fibre cuts caused by certain unknown parties seemed to be a deliberate and intentional attempt to disrupt its services in Pune and tarnish the brand image of the company, especially during a high decibel event like the ICC World Twenty20.
Senior Hathway officials in Pune immediately took measures to counter this act of fibre cut by illegal means by lodging FIRs across three major police stations in the city and demanding a probe.
Following the police investigation, Hathway will be taking legal measures against the culprits.
