Mobile Internet services remained snapped in Jammu for the seventh consecutive day on Friday even as the situation in the region remained normal after the killing of the Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces last week.
Fearing law-and-order problem, the authorities had snapped mobile Internet services in the entire Jammu region after Wani was killed on July 8.
“Because of Friday we could not hold the high-level security review meeting today, but the administration will hold the meeting tomorrow and the decision to revoke the ban on mobile Internet services in the region would be taken then,” Divisional Commissioner Jammu, Pawan Kotwal, told PTI.
