Pertinent to mention here that the 2G mobile internet service in five districts of Jammu region, which was restored on August 16 night, was again snapped on Sunday following rumour mongering.

'Taking preventive measures, the internet service was snapped on Sunday as some elements started rumour mongering on various issues in this sensitive state especially post abrogation of Article 370 on August 5,' said a senior police official.

He, however, said situation in entire state is quite peaceful and normalcy is limping back while around 190 schools in Srinagar also opened today and the restrictions in 35 police stations are also lifted.

'No untoward-like incident took place and the lifting of restriction period has been extended from six to eight hours, which will further be eased in the coming days,' he added.
