Authorities on Monday suspended high-speed mobile internet services in central Kashmir’s Srinagar.

Official sources said the high-speed mobile Internet service was suspended in the city after a directive from the security agencies.

“The mobile internet speed was reduced to 2G as soon as we got the order to do so,” said the official.

The decision about the suspension of the high-speed mobile internet was taken in view of the Karan Nagar gunfight.

A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) man was killed and a policeman critically injured in the ongoing firefight in Karan Nagar area.

Reports said that two militants who had taken cover inside an abandoned building near a CRPF camp in Karan Nagar opened fire after forces launched searches in the area.

Two militants carrying bags and AK-47 rifles were seen by the sentry approaching the camp of the 23 battalion of CRPF in Karan Nagar area around 4.30 am, reports added.
