GURGAON: In a bizarre move, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has decided toseal all the mobile towers in its jurisdiction with immediate effect, citing health hazards.

This move is seen affecting mobile services particularly in the old city.

There are a total of 502 mobile towers in the city out of which 298 are under the MCG’s jurisdiction.
