The state government has suspended mobile internet services (2G/3G/4G/CDMA/ GPRS), all SMS services (excluding banking and mobile recharge) and all dongle services provided on mobile networks, except the voice calls, in the territorial jurisdiction of districts of Ambala, Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Kaithal, Panipat, Hisar, Jind, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Charkhi Dadri, Fatehabad, Rewari and Sirsa too.

An official spokesperson said the suspension in these 14 districts will be imposed till 5 pm on January 30 while the suspension of mobile internet services in Sonepat, Palwal and Jhajjar has been extended for next 24 hours till 5 pm on January 30.

This order is issued to prevent any disturbance of peace and public order in the jurisdiction of these districts and shall be in force with immediate effect. Any person who will be found guilty of violation of aforesaid order will be liable for legal action under relevant provisions.

The spokesman said the suspension had been ordered under Rule 2 of the Temporary Suspension of Telecom Services (Public Emergency or Public Safety) Rules, 2017. All telecom service providers in the state, including the Head of BSNL (Haryana jurisdiction), are hereby directed to ensure the compliance of this order.

The spokesman said the state government had decided to impose this suspension of internet services in order to stop the spread of disinformation and rumours through various social media platforms, such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter, etc on mobile phones and SMS, for facilitation and mobilisation of mobs of agitators who can cause serious loss of life and damage to public and private properties by indulging in arson or vandalism and other types of violent activities. — TNS
