Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Monday restored low speed internet in parts of the Kashmir Valley, six days after it was snapped after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Riyaz Naikoo’s and three other militants in two separate gunfights in south Kashmir.

The 2G mobile internet was restored late Monday evening, hours after Supreme Court of India refused to order restoration of high speed internet in the Union Territory suspended since August 5 last year when government of India revoked Article 370 and Article 35-A, besides split the state into two Union Territories.

Last Wednesday, mobile 2G internet and short messaging services (SMS) were suspended amid fears of widespread protests over the killing of Naikoo in a gunfight in his native Beighpora village of Awantipora.

The authorities had also cut-off cellular services, barring state-run BSNL amid fears of protests over Naikoo’s killing.
