Srinagar, Sept 25: Clashes took place between stone pelting mobs and security forces on Friday as authorities enforced an internet blackout across Jammu and Kashmir.

Police used batons and tear smoke shells to disperse the protesters.

Fearing posting of objectionable pictures and comments on the social media following beef ban order, the authorities have suspended internet services on cell phones across the state.

Broadband services also remained suspended across the state since Friday morning.

Top intelligence sources told IANS that the ban will remain in force for two days to prevent anti-social elements from stoking communal tension in the state.
