SRINAGAR Mobile Internet service was restored in Srinagar on Saturday following a day-long suspension after the killing of a militant from the city in a gunfight in south Kashmirs Anantnag district.
The service was suspended as the word spread about the killing of chief of Islamic State of Jammu Kashmir (ISJK) Dawood Sofi alias Salafi along with three associates in a gunfight with forces in Srigufwara area of the district yesterday.
While the service was restored in Srinagar, it continues to remain suspended in Anantnag and Pulwama districts.
