Manipur government suspends mobile internet services for five days
TT Correspondent |  |  21 Jul 2018

The Manipur government has suspended mobile internet services for 5 days to curb rumours-mongering through spread of hate videos and messages in the state.

The step was taken to prevent spread of rumours "which might have serious repercussion for the law and order situation in the entire state of Manipur" an order issued yesterday by Special Secretary (Home) Kh Raghumani said.

It said the step was taken to prevent disturbances of peace and public order, besides mob mobilisation.

In the recent past, the state has seen several cases of mob violence and lynching which were triggered allegedly by spread of fake and inciting videos and messages through social media platforms.
