Srinagar: After suspending mobile internet services, authorities in Kashmir also cut-off voice calls on all mobile networks — except government-run BSNL — following the killing of militant commander Riyaz Naikoo in a gunfight in Awantipora, Pulwama, with the government forces on Wednesday.

Inspecter General of Police, Kashmir, Vijay Kumar, told India Today in a phone-in that voice calls have been suspended and curfew would be imposed in most parts of Kashmir as a precautionary measure.

“He (Naikoo) was a role model for militant recruitment and was involved in the killing of several security personnel. We have shut mobile internet, voice calls, and SMS service and will also impose curfew in most areas,” Kumar told India Today.

Several subscribers of Reliance Jio and Airtel confirmed they were not able to make voice calls. The services were suspended at around 3 pm on Wednesday.
