Mobile operators Jio, Airtel, VodafoneIdea, BSNL/MTNL, have resumed mobile, SMS and internet services in those parts of the capital which they were specifically shut down on police orders on Thursday after the period of restriction (1 p.m.) got over.
According to a copy of the order, seen by IANS, all communications from voice, SMS and internet were to be shut down till 1 p.m. on the directions of the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Special Cell in view of the prevailing law and order situation amid the protests over the Citizenship Amendment Bill.
