Srinagar April 14: Mobile internet (2G&3G) services were on Thursday snapped in Kashmir to prevent escalation of protests. The step was taken by the administration to check spreading of rumours by anti-social elements, officials said.
Although service providers remained tight-lipped about suspension of the mobile internet services, a senior police official said the step was taken to check spreading of rumours.
Services were unavailable to subscribers in Kupwara, Baramulla, Bandipora and Ganderbal districts on Thursday morning.
Residents of Srinagar and south Kashmir have been unable to access mobile internet services this morning.
According to officials the mobile internet suspension was a precautionary measure and the services would be restored as soon as things return to normal.
