Internet services on cell phones have been restored in Kashmir after being suspended for more than 12 hours as a precautionary measure to ensure the smooth passage of the Republic Day celebrations on Tuesday, officials said.
However, the call service on mobile phones remained unaffected.
“Mobile Internet services have now been restored. Services were temporarily suspended early in the morning in the valley to ensure the peaceful celebration of Republic Day, “officials said.
The suspension of mobile phone and internet services during Republic Day and Independence Day has been part of the security exercise in the Valley since 2005, when militants used a mobile phone to set off an explosion of explosive devices near the home to an Independence Day program.
