Mobile phone blackout in Kashmir

india Updated: Jan 26, 2012 11:13 IST

Mobile phones across the Kashmir Valley stopped functioning as service providers shut off connectivity as part of the high security drill for the 63rd Republic Day on Thursday.

Mobile phone services in Srinagar were withdrawn to prevent separatists from triggering electronically-controlled remote devices.

"This is part of the standard security drill. The services will be restored immediately after the official parade ends here," an intelligence officer said.
