Representational

Kolkata: The West Bengal government announced a suspension of the internet on seven districts for eight days and reasoned that it is a preventive measure to avoid unlawful activities in those districts, Asian News International reported.

In a statement on Thursday, the Additional Chief Secretary, Home and Hill Affairs Department, said that the government had received intelligence reports that unlawful activities can be carried out in certain areas over internet transmissions and voice over internet telephony and hence restrictions are being imposed on the use of the internet.

It added that the restriction would be imposed in a few blocks under the districts of Malda, Murshidabad, Uttar Dinajpur, Coochbehar, Jalpaiguri, Birbhum and Darjeeling on March 7 to 9, March 11 and 12 and on March 15 and 16 from 11:00 am to 3:15 pm.

However, no restriction is there on voice calls, SMS and newspapers.
