With Pakistani television channels launching a campaign, the government has suspended cable TV services in Jammu and Kashmir amid violent protests over last week’s killing of separatist leader Burhan Wani.

The shut down of cable TV came after authorities cut off mobile phone and internet services on 9 July.

Mobile phone internet services have remained indefinitely banned in the state since 9 July, after the BJP-PDP-led J&K state government claimed that it is an attempt to “stop rumour mongering on social networking sites”.

The state has been under curfew since 9 July in the wake of clashes after security forces killed Hizbul Mujahideen commander Wani.

The police also seized copies of major Urdu and English newspapers in the Kashmir Valley after midnight raids on newspaper printing presses.
