The services of women helpline 181, launched by Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit following massive public protest in the wake of the December 16 Delhi gangrape incident, was affected due to damage in underground telephone cables near ITO.
Officials said the Telecommunication department was working to restore the telephone lines.
