Postpaid mobile telephone services were on Saturday restored in Kashmir after being suspended for six days to curb rumour-mongering in the Valley where 64 persons have been killed over the past 43 days.

The mobile telephone services across all networks were restored around 11 am, an official said.

He said, however, outgoing call facility on pre-paid phones have not been restored yet.

The mobile phone services were snapped on August 13 as part of security drill ahead of Independence Day celebrations as well as to thwart separatist plans of holding rallies in the city centre.

However, curfew remained in force in Srinagar district and two south Kashmir towns even as normal life in the Valley was paralysed for the 43rd day on Saturday due to unrest in the wake of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

“Curfew is in force in entire Srinagar district, Anantnag town and Pampore town as a precautionary measure, ” a police official said.

The official said restrictions on the movement of the people were in force in rest of the Valley.
