Mobile phone services hit in Kashmir Valley
Mobile phone services were suspended across the Kashmir Valley Sunday as part of security precautions on the Republic Day.
Authorities order the suspension of mobile phone services across the valley Jan 26 and Aug 15 to foil remote-controlled explosions with the use of mobile phones.
The mobile phones, however, functioned in Jammu.
Meanwhile, a separatist-called shutdown affected life across the valley Sunday. Private and public transport were suspended in Srinagar city and other major towns.
