Mobile internet services were restored in Kargil district of Ladakh on Friday, more than 145 days after being suspended in the wake of the Centre abrogating Article 370, officials said.
The services were suspended on August 4 as a preventive measure alongside blockade of landline and mobile services in the initial days of the abrogation. The services were restored in view of complete normalcy returning to Kargil, with no untoward incident taking place over the past four months, the officials said. Notably, broadband services were already functional in Kargil.
The officials said that local religious leaders have appealed to people not to misuse the facility.
While the restoration has finally been implemented in Kargil, mobile Internet services in many parts of Jammu and Kashmir are still blocked.
