Mobile Internet service was suspended in north Kashmir's Kupwara district following the killing of two militants in a gunfight with the government forces on Thursday afternoon.

The Internet was snapped in the area soon after the killing of two Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants in the gunfight.

Authorities said the step was taken as a "precautionary measure to maintain law and order in the district."

Police had said that both the militants killed in the gunfight were involved in a rifle-snatching incident in the district on Tuesday.
