"To avoid the spread of rumours, fake news and develop a panicky situation that leads to violence, we are forced to take the decision", a senior minister in the government said. "Therefore, it is better to put a stop to this rather than putting a blanket ban on the internet", he said, adding that these suggestions have been made to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

The mobile internet service for post-paid connections was restored on November 19 past year after a gap of about five months.
