Clashes in Kashmir; internet blackout across state

SRINAGAR (TIP): Clashes took place between stone pelting mobs and security forces on Friday as authorities enforced an internet blackout across Jammu and Kashmir.

The clashes broke out immediately after the Eid prayers at Eidgah area here. The clashes were also reported from Kashmir’s Anantnag, Baramula, Kupwara and Sopore towns.

Police used batons and tear smoke shells to disperse the protesters.

Fearing posting of objectionable pictures and comments on the social media following beef ban order, the authorities have suspended internet services on cell phones across the state.

Broadband services also remained suspended across the state since September 25 morning.
