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.
