Reliance Industries is all set to move the Punjab and Haryana High Court over several Reliance Jio mobile towers and other establishments being vandalised in Punjab during the farmers’ protests.

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) will be filing a petition in the high court through Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited to seek urgent intervention of the Punjab government to stop the vandalism of Jio properties over the past weeks.

In its petition, Reliance has said, “These acts of violence have endangered the lives of thousands of its employees and caused damage and disruption to the vital communications infrastructure, sales and service outlets run by its subsidiaries in the two states.”

Allegedly, over 200 Reliance Jio towers were damaged and vandalised in Punjab in the past weeks on a daily basis as angry farmers protested against the farm laws and Reliance Jio.

Last week, Reliance Jio Infocomm had written to Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh and Punjab DGP seeking their intervention into "incidents of sabotage and vandalism at Jio Network sites" in Punjab by unknown persons.

Reports have suggested angry farmers have vandalised over 1,500 Reliance Jio towers over the past weeks as the protests against Centre's farm reform laws intensified. CM Amarinder Singh had appealed to the farmers to not indulge in vandalism, but failed to bring any results.

On December 25, the number of mobile towers destroyed was 700, within three days this number rose to 1,504. There are a total of 9,000 towers in the state of Punjab.

Some bundles of Jio's fibre cable were burnt in Jalandhar while videos of Jio employees being threatened and made to flee have been widely circulated on social media.
