Srinagar, Sept 6 (GNS): Barring Srinagar and Budgam districts, mobile internet was on Monday evening restored in Kashmir after remaining suspended for five days following the death of Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani last week.

Officials said mobile internet services were restored after 7 pm in eight districts of Kashmir.

Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar told GNS that the decision regarding restoration of the mobile internet services in Srinagar and Budgam will be reviewed tomorrow afternoon.
