2G internet restored after 8 hours in Kashmir

Srinagar: Low speed 2G internet was restored after remaining suspended for about eight hours since early Sunday morning due to security reasons in Kashmir valley, where broadband internet services remained suspended since August 5.

Meanwhile, life was on Sunday crippled due to a strike called by separatists in the summer capital, Srinagar and other parts of Kashmir valley on the seventh death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, who was hanged in Delhi’s Tihar jail on this day in 2013.

Official sources told UNI that all cellular companies were directed to suspend internet services in the valley from 0800 hrs to 1600 hrs for security reasons.
