  • On Saturday, hours after low-speed mobile internet was restored in Kashmir, authorities again snapped services, citing security reasons in view of Republic Day. Mobile Internet was restored after being suspended nearly six months ago in the wake of the Centre's decision to revoke Article 370, but the service could only be used to access 301 websites approved by the administration.

    Senior American diplomat Alice Wells has termed developments regarding the Citizenship (Amendment) Act a “vigorous democratic scrutiny”.

    CRPF Director General (DG) A P Maheshwari said the apprehension of DSP Davinder Singh is "a grave incident and an area of extreme concern" for the security forces. "No security grid should be allowed to be weakened by such episodes. So, all forces have to keep an internal watch," he said.

    Restoring the service was the latest step towards easing the restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir following the Supreme Court's January 10 ruling asking its administration to review within a week all orders imposing curbs in the Union Territory. On January 18, the administration restored prepaid mobile services in the Valley and resumed 2G mobile data service on white-listed websites across the Jammu division.

    India's reiteration on the Kashmir issue came after Trump while addressing the media with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Davos on Tuesday said that the US was watching the developments relating to Kashmir "very closely" and repeated his offer to "help" resolve the dispute. It was Trump's fourth offer to help in resolving the Kashmir issue since withdrawal of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
