Internet services suspended in Kashmir Valley
Srinagar: Authorities on Thursday suspended internet services on mobile phones and through dongles in Kashmir Valley as a precautionary measure following killing of four persons in firing in Jammu and Kashmir`s Ramban district.
The internet services on mobile phones and through dongles have been suspended for the time being to prevent miscreants from spreading rumours using these services, official sources said.
The speed of the Broadband connections has also been reduced, they said.
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 besides the services were snapped for a week in the wake of hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru in February this year.
The incident today took place when a mob attacked a BSF camp in Ramban to protest alleged high-handedness of a patrolling party.
