Government website has incomplete map of India

A government website, in one of its pages mapping the country's police wireless communication network, shows a distorted map of India, cutting off parts of Jammu and Kashmir that New Delhi claims are under the illegal occupation of   »

New Delhi: The authorities have removed a controversial map of India from a government website that didn't have parts of Jammu and Kashmir which New Delhi claims are under the illegal occupation of Pakistan and China.

The map on the website of the Directorate of Coordination Police Wireless -- www.dcpw.nic.in -- was removed after IANS first broke the story Wednesday pointing out that the northern areas of Kashmir, also called Gilgit-Baltistan, and Aksai Chin were not included in the map.

The website used the image in one of its pages to map the country's police wireless communication network.

The map could have been the copy of the CIA India Map that had earlier stirred a similar controversy over Indian territory.

Gilgit-Baltistan was militarily occupied by Pakistan in 1948 and China gained control of Aksai Chin, towards east of Ladakh, in the 1962 war.

The department, under the ministry of home affairs, is responsible for establishing the police telecommunication network in the country and also maintaining coordination.

It has been entrusted with the responsibility of setting up an integrated police wireless network in the country, called POLNET, to create a direct link between all police stations for online crime and criminal information systems.

It also advises the ministry on all telecommunication matters. The department has created a network of 31 inter-state police wireless stations.

The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded immediate correction of the faulty map and punishment for the officer responsible for the distortion.
