Mobile internet service restored in Srinagar

Agency News

Srinagar, Apr 6: Mobile internet services of all cellular companies, including Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), resumed on Saturday after remaining suspended on Friday as a precautionary measure, where clashes took place in Central Jail, between inmates and security forces.

However, the broadband of BSNL and point-to-point internet service of some private companies were not affected. Mobile internet services were now functioning normally in Srinagar. The mobile internet was on Friday suspended in Srinagar to prevent spread of rumours following clashes and fire in central jail on Thursday.

Two inmates received pellet injuries in security force action on detenues who were protesting against shifting of some of them to outside the valley jails.

Suspension of service had badly hit the students, doctors and other professionals besides journalists, who had to file their reports on fixed internet lines.

Airtel service provider had informed its customers that as per government instructions, the internet services have been temporarily suspended in Srinagar. UNI
