Mobile Internet services suspended in Valley
Srinagar, Apr 01: Mobile Internet services were suspended in the Kashmir Valley today as a “precautionary measure” as encounters between government forces and militants raged in south Kashmir.
Internet services on mobile devices were snapped shortly after clashes broke out at many places in south Kashmir and some parts of the city this afternoon, an official said.
He said the decision to snap Internet services was taken as a “precautionary measure to prevent mischievous elements from creating law and order problems”.
The authorities also suspended train services in Kashmir as a precautionary step as trains have been targeted during law and order situations in the past.
