Following the killing of three LeT militants in Amargadh Sopore earlier today, internet services excluding Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) have been suspended in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Saturday.
The services were suspended as “precautionary measure” in Baramulla district. The mobile Internet services barring broadband remain down here in the district.
Earlier, three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants were killed in a gunfight with the government forces in Sopore town, police said.
The authorities had directed all cellular companies to suspend cellular and mobile Internet services in Baramulla to “prevent spread of any rumour on social media,” an official said
