The Jammu and Kashmir administration restored postpaid cellular service connections in the Valley on 14 October, 70 days after the abrogation of article 370 on 5 August. However, hours later, the government reimposed curbs on SMS services.
According to a report by The Indian Express , the move came after the J&K police said that two milliants gunned down the driver of a truck from Rajasthan transporting apples in Sindhu Shermal village of Shopian district.
News agency PTI had earlier reported that a truck driver transporting apples in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir was shot dead by militants and the suspects included a Pakistani national.
Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik had earlier said mobile phones were being used by terrorists to spread a hate campaign in the state.
