2G internet services have been restored in eight districts in Kashmir, except Pulwama and Shopian. The move comes after the Supreme Court (SC) had ruled out immediate restoration of 4G services in Jammu & Kashmir.

With this, 2G mobile services are restored in eight of 10 districts in Kashmir.

Ordering restoration of 2G internet services, Jammu & Kashmir government said that high-speed internet can be used by inimical elements to coordinate terror attacks or incite people by circulating propaganda material.

Recently, the SC had directed immediate setting up of a high-powered committee, which will look into the contentions raised by various petitioners for the restoration of 4G internet in Jammu & Kashmir.
