Mobile internet services restored in Srinagar

Srinagar, Apr 20: Mobile internet services were restored in Srinagar, hours after being temporarily suspended today as a precautionary measure to check rumour mongering in the wake of recent protests demanding justice for the Kathua rape victim.
A police official said the suspension of the mobile internet facility was a precautionary measure “for just a few hours”.
It was a precautionary measure to check rumour mongering and prevent miscreants from creating any law and order problems, he said.
While the mobile internet services worked normally in rest of the valley, the speed was reduced in the four districts Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Shopian of south Kashmir, the official said.
The service was restored in south Kashmir as well this evening, he said. Widespread protests erupted in Kashmir in support of the demand for justice for the victim of the horrific rape and murder case in Kathua district of the state in January this year.
The protests, especially by the students, have forced authorities to close down most of the colleges and higher secondary educational institutions in the valley.
