Afzal Guru hanged: Mobile internet services snapped in Kashmir
Srinagar: Authorities on Saturday snapped the mobile internet services in Kashmir valley following hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammed Afzal Guru inside Tihar jail in national capital.
All the mobile internet connections have stopped functioning this morning as the news about hanging of Guru broke out.
Although, no reason has been given for snapping the services, it is believed that the step was taken as a preemptive measure to prevent any misuse of the internet.
In the past, authorities had suspended internet and mobile services during the 2010 summer unrest in the valley as some people used the internet to mobilise protests.
These services are suspended on every Republic day and Independence Day as a precautionary measure as well.
