The internet service on pre-paid mobile service remained suspended for the 135th consecutive day today in the Kashmir valley.

However, internet service on postpaid mobile was restored last night after remaining suspended since July 8 night when Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander and two other militants were killed in an encounter in Anantnag, where the ongoing unrest has left 90 civilians dead and several thousand injured in security force and police action.

Official sources said the internet services were restored last night following improvement in the situation in the valley, where separatists had given relaxation in strike for two days from today since July 9.

The mobile internet service was suspended immediately after Burhan was killed to curb rumours. Even BSNL boardband and other fixed line internet service was also suspended in between, particularly on independence Day and Eid-ul-Fitr.

The postpaid mobile service of all cellular companies, barring BSNL, was also suspended after the eruption of violence which was later restored following criticism from politicians, professional and students.UNI ABS SB 1217
