Mobile communication partially restored in Kashmir

Srinagar: While most postpaid services were restored at midnight, some of the prepaid numbers resumed functioning this morning. The decision was taken in view of the improving situation in the Valley, a police official said.

He said a decision on resumption of mobile internet services will be taken after a review of the situation.

All mobile telephone services, except BSNL, were suspended on July 15 after violent protests over the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani spread across the Valley.

Mobile internet services were snapped on July 9
