Mobile internet services resume in Kashmir valley
Srinagar: Much to the relief of over 30 lakh subscribers, mobile internet services were restored in Kashmir valley on Thursday after remaining suspended for four days as a precautionary measure after the communal clashes in Kishtwar district.
The services were snapped on Sunday as rumours about death and destruction in Kishtwar and other riot-hit areas in Jammu region started doing rounds on social networking sites.
The internet services on mobile phones and mobile internet connections started functioning this evening.
Police officials said the services were suspended as mobile internet was misused by miscreants to fan trouble in the valley in the past.
The mobile services were snapped in the wake of hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru and in the aftermath of Gool firing incident in which four persons were killed.
