Mobile Internet services suspended in Kashmir on Republic Day


Srinagar, Jan 26: Internet services on mobile devices were suspended in Kashmir on Wednesday in view of Republic Day celebrations in the valley, officials said.

They said that the services have been temporarily suspended to ensure peaceful Republic Day celebrations.

However, the mobile phone and broadband services remained unaffected.

Authorities have been suspending the mobile phone and Internet services on Republic Day and Independence Day as part of the security drill in the valley since 2005 when militants used a mobile phone to trigger an IED blast near the venue of Independence Day celebrations.
