SRINAGAR: Authorities tonight suspended Internet services in the Kashmir Valley as a precautionary measure after separatists appealed to people to launch a "Kashmir awareness" campaign on social media tomorrow.

The move comes a day after the administration restored the services which were snapped through Friday and Saturday in view of apprehensions of law and order problems on the first death anniversary of Hizbul 'commander' Burhan Wani.

Internet services, including mobile and broadband, have been suspended across the Kashmir Valley, officials said here. Mobile Internet services were snapped at 10 pm and BSNL broadband facility at 10:30 pm, they said.

The decision to suspend Internet services was taken at a meeting earlier in the day in view of the separatists appealing people to launch a "Kashmir awareness" campaign on social media tomorrow, the officials said.
