Mobile Internet service was snapped across Kashmir valley in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
Both the high and low-speed mobile Internet services were snapped shortly after midnight.
A senior government official said that internet was snapped only as a precautionary measure in wake of the PM’s visit. He said that there are security concerns which prompted the government to snap the internet.
From last few days, security has been heightened across the Valley especially in the areas through which PM Modi’s movement is expected.
The venue where Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate projects in Srinagar has been virtually turned into the fortress with civilian traffic movement halted through the roads leading to the venue.
