Jammu and Kashmir: Mobile internet suspended in Kashmir Valley after Yasin Malik sentencing
Srinagar, May 25: Mobile internet services were suspended in the Kashmir Valley on Wednesday, although there was no official word on the matter.
The development came after a special NIA court in New Delhi handed down the life sentence against separatist leader Yasin Malik, who was found guilty in a terrorist financing case. Yasin Malik sentenced to life in prison by the NIA court in the terrorist financing case in 2017.
However, fixed broadband Internet services remained functional.
A massive deployment of security forces has been carried out around all the places considered sensitive due to the public order situation, including Maisuma locality in Srinagar where Malik’s house is located.
The deployment was also reinforced in other parts of the valley in order to maintain public order.
With the exception of a stone-throwing incident in the Maisuma area, the situation remained generally calm in Srinagar city and elsewhere.
Police used tear gas canisters to control the situation in Maisuma.
