Several Srinagar areas still facing internet shutdown

Srinagar, February 21 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, mobile internet remains suspended in many areas of Srinagar.

In many localities like Rainawari, Safa Kadal, Nowhatta and other area in Srinagar people are still without mobile internet service for the most of the time.

More than four months have passed since mobile internet faces suspension and people mostly business community and students are enduring problems.

“The shutdown is mostly of Airtel and Vodafone (Vi) services. Sometimes Jio services work, but largely they remain affected,” said Ishafaq Ahmad, a resident of Rainawari in Srinagar.

This began to happen in October 2021 while police first did mass seizure of two-wheelers in Srinagar, and then shut down the internet during the day hours, twice a day.

The internet service, initially, remained suspended in the area from 7am to 11am and then from 3pm till 10pm on a regular basis. Now they are shut for more than six hours at one stretch.
