Srinagar, Feb 13: Mobile Internet services was restored in Kashmir on Thursday afternoon, hours after authorities had suspended the facility to prevent rumours about the health of separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

Adequate number of security forces have been deployed at “vulnerable places in Kashmir to maintain law and order and prevent miscreants from fomenting any trouble”, they said.

Geelani's family said he has been ill for some time but his condition is stable.
