Internet suspension continues in Tripura

Correspondent

Agartala, January 10, 2019: Internet and cellular services shut down in Tripura to continue for another 48 hours. State government took the decision after reviewing security situation of the state in aftermath of violence at Madhav Bari near here on Wednesday.

17 people were injured including six sustaining bullet shots. Services will now be restored on Saturday evening.

The suspension of internet was precautionary to prevent spread of rumours and tension over the violent incidents during a protest by tribal activists enforcing 12 hour strike against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
