Srinagar: April 20: Mobile Internet services have been temporarily suspended in Srinagar city, while the high-speed network was throttled in parts of south Kashmir today as a precautionary measure to check rumour mongering in the wake of recent protests demanding justice for the Kathua rape victim.
A police official said the suspension of the mobile Internet facility is a precautionary measure for just few hours.
It is a precautionary measure to check rumour mongering and prevent miscreants from creating any law and order problems, the official said.
He said while mobile Internet services were working normally in the rest of the valley, the speed has been reduced in the four districts of Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Shopian of south Kashmir.
The official said the facility would be restored in a few hours.
