New Delhi: Idea Cellular Ltd said on Wednesday that it has suspended interconnect services with Aircel Ltd for non-payment of dues “despite several reminders”.

We sincerely hope that the operator will honour its contractual obligation and payment commitment, in the interest of customers,” the statement added. Aircel could not be immediately reached for comments.
