Internet, mobile services suspended in J&K after infiltration bid by terrorists

Srinagar: Internet and mobile phone services have been suspended in Jammu and Kashmir after an infiltration attempt was detected by the Indian Army, authorities said on Monday.

This is the second such attempt this year and it comes amid a backdrop of no ceasefire violations or instigations from across the border, unlike the previous years.

The army has called in reinforcements and a large area has been cordoned off in the Uri sector which lies close to the Line of Control.

The suspension of internet and mobile phone services are part of the counter-infiltration operation already underway here.

It is unclear if the group are on the Indian side or whether they have gone back after making the attempt
