Ban on 4G extended

January 9, 2021

The Government on Friday extended ban on high speed 3G and 4G internet services in Jammu and Kashmir barring Ganderbal and Udhampur districts till January 22. The Home Department in an order issued here said "certain restrictions" have been placed on access to high speed mobile data connectivity to "curb uploading / downloading / circulation of provocative videos and defeat the nefarious designs of the forces within and from across the border to create a narrative by running a disinformation campaign."

"The apprehensions of the law enforcement agencies regarding misuse of high speed mobile data services for infiltration and for coordinating (terrorist) activities gets credence from investigation of ongoing cases and recent incident of interception of (terrorists) and recoveries of arms/ammunition with increased activity on the IB/LoC," read the order.
