Srinagar: Cell phones and wireless Internet connections across Kashmir Valley fell silent today as official functions to celebrate the Republic Day started this morning.

All mobile phone and wireless Internet services were jammed by authorities this morning as a precautionary measure, official sources said.

It has become a regular practice in Kashmir to jam the mobile telephony and Internet signals during Republic Day and Independence Day functions.

Militants have used mobile phones in the past to trigger remote controlled explosive devices in Kashmir.
