Citizenship Bill protests: Tripura government suspends mobile internet, SMS services for 48 hours

Photos of rioting incidents in areas under the Jirania Police Station in West Tripura district were being uploaded on social media, the government claimed.

The Tripura government on Tuesday banned mobile internet and SMS services in the state, citing a threat to the law and order situation amid protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. The Lok Sabha passed the bill earlier on Tuesday. The internet ban began at 3 pm on Tuesday and will continue for 48 hours, a government order said.
