Kashmir to restore mobile internet services

Mobile internet services were restored in Kashmir on Monday which lifted restrictions for three hours by the authority on movement of people in Handwara and Kupwara towns. Five people were found dead from last Tuesday in the violent protest.  Breaking down of the AP Internet services on mobile phones followed the violent protests in Kashmir. 


A police official stated that "Mobile internet services were restored a little past midnight as there was no major incident of protest or violence across Kashmir Valley on Sunday.  


Snapping of Internet services on mobile phones followed by the violent protests against the alleged molestation of a girl in Handwara last Tuesday. Five people were killed in security forces action against protesters in Handwara and nearby Kupwara towns in the following days.


He further added that if the relaxation period passed off peacefully, it will be eased for rest of the day. "So far, the situation is peaceful and there are no reports of any untoward incident from anywhere in the Valley including north Kashmir towns of Handwara and Kupwara."


Strikes and protests has made the life of most parts of Kashmir limped back to normalcy after remaining paralysed for almost a week leading the resumed train services between Baramulla in Kashmir and Banihal, across the Pir Panjal mountain range on Sunday after remaining off the tracks for four days.
