Srinagar: After remaining suspended for three days, Internet services were restored in the Kashmir Valley on Tuesday evening.

Authorities suspended the services on both mobile and fixed landline connections on April 9 in the valley to check the spread of rumours during voting in the Srinagar-Budgam Lok Sabha constituency.

After the Election Commission decided to postpone the by-election in Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency to May 25 from April 12, the authorities decided to restore internet services in the valley.

The April 9 voting was marred by largescale violence which left eight protesters dead in firing by security forces.
