Broadband services restored in the valley
Broadband internet services of BSNL in Kashmir Valley have been restored tonight after remaining suspended for five days.
“The broadband internet services will be restored tonight,” an official said earlier in the evening.
The services were snapped on the eve of Eid-ul-Azha on September 12 in view of the apprehensions of law-and-order problems.
Mobile telephony services, excluding the post-paid connections of BSNL were also snapped across the Valley at 4 PM on the same day. However, there was no word on the restoration of mobile internet.
Mobile internet remains suspended in the violence-hit valley since July 10 after the unrest broke out in the wake of the killing of Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani with the security forces on July 8.
As many as 81 people including two cops have been killed and several thousands have been injured in the violence so far.
