Tral Encounter: Government shuts internet in valley once again

Srinagar: The Government of Jammu and Kashmir snapped the mobile internet (2G, 3G and 4G) services in Kashmir fearing law and order problems, especially after the killing of top Hizb ul Mujahideen commander Sabzar Ahmad Bhat in Tral encounter on Saturday.

It has not even been 24 hours since the social media sites and applications including Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter were restored in Kashmir Valley.

A fresh surge of anti-Indian protests have hit the Valley today, after successor of dead Hizb ul Mujahideen (HM) commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with forces in the Tral region of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday.
