Govt plans 72-hour mobile internet ban in Kashmir valley

Srinagar: The administration is likely to block mobile internet services in the state for a few days starting from Thursday night.

Sources said that there was almost total unanimity on the issue of blocking mobile internet services during the security review meeting called by the DGP K Rajendra in Srinagar on Monday night. During the meeting attended by the security agencies, both state and center, the use of social media during Eid celebrations was widely discussed and it was agreed that pictures and videos of slaughtering of cows- considered inevitable in Kashmir would lead to incitement of communal passions across the state and even the country. We all agreed that people would be posting all sorts of pictures and videos on Facebook and Twitter.
