Mobile internet services likely to be restored


Srinagar, Oct 24: Authorities are likely to restore mobile internet services in within next two days, said sources.

“With the improvement of situation across the Kashmir, the mobile internet services would be restored in Kashmir on October 25 or October 26,” sources told KNS.

They said that the authorities are taking assessment of the situation. “The situation across the Kashmir is by and large peaceful. The final call to restore services will be taken on shortly,” they said.
