OB Bureau

New Delhi: Days after the restoration of internet services in Manipur following a five-month ban, they were suspended once again for five days in the wake of fresh protests in the state that flared up after two students were brutally murdered by suspected armed men. Scores of students on Tuesday took to the streets and marched towards Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s residence demanding justice for the victims. The unrest took place after pictures of two students’ bodies went viral on social media.

The administrative officials said the internet services have been suspended in view of the prevailing law and order situation and in an attempt to curb the spread of disinformation, false rumours and other violent activities.

“The state government decides to suspend/curb the mobile internet data services, internet/data services through VPN in the territorial jurisdiction of the state of Manipur for five days with immediate effect till 7:45 pm of October 10,” the circular said.

All the schools in the state will remain closed on Wednesday in the wake of the protests.
