Srinagar, April 11 (IANS) After remaining suspended for three days, Internet services were restored in the Kashmir Valley on Tuesday evening.

Authorities suspended the services on both mobile and fixed landline connections on April 9 in the valley to check the spread of rumours during voting in the Srinagar-Budgam Lok Sabha constituency.

After the Election Commission decided to postpone the by-election in Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency to May 25 from April 12, the authorities decided to restore internet services in the valley.

The April 9 voting was marred by largescale violence which left eight protesters dead in firing by security forces.
