Mobile Internet services were restored in Srinagar on Saturday, a day after they were suspended as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order, a police official said.

He said the decision to restore the services was taken in view of the improving situation.

The authorities had on Friday barred mobile Internet services in Srinagar, Anantnag and Pulwama districts of the Valley.

The services were suspended as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order following an encounter in Anantnag district in which four militants, reportedly belonging to the Islamic State Jammu and Kashmir, were killed.
