JAMMU: The government on Friday extended the ban on high-speed 4G internet services till January 8.“The internet speed shall be continued to be restricted to 2G, except the districts of Ganderbal and Udhampur, where mobile internet connectivity shall be continued to be made available without any speed related restrictions,” the government order read.The administration cited the recently held Panchayat elections that saw participation by political parties, and said that it had gone down well with the “elements inimical to public peace and tranquility”.“The successful conduct of the recently concluded election, which witnessed participation of political parties across the spectrum and large scale voter turnout, has not gone down well with the elements inimical to public peace and tranquillity, as apparent from the multiple incidents of hurling of grenades by terrorists since the conclusion of the election process, targeting civilians/police personnel/security forces and the encounter with security forces,” the order stated.There were credible inputs that a large number of terrorists were trying to infiltrate from across the border, adding that curbs on high speed internet had obstructed the attempts, the order said. The government also said there had been efforts to lure local youth to join militant groups.
