Last Friday saw intense clashes between protesters and security forces at many places in the Valley after the congregational prayers. The clashes left three people dead and several hundred others injured. Mobile telephony services, except BSNL postpaid, were first snapped in the Valley on July 15 in the aftermath of violence following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on July 8.

The authorities had snapped mobile internet facility in the entire Valley on July 9. While the postpaid services were resumed on July 26, the incoming call facility on the prepaid numbers was restored a day later. However, the outgoing facility on such numbers continued to remain barred. Mobile internet also continued to remain snapped for the 35th day today.
