Barely a day after the Jammu and Kashmir government lifted its month-long social media ban in the Valley, social media has been banned again.

This comes hours after Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Sabzar Ahmad Bhat, and another terrorist were gunned down in Kashmir on Saturday morning. Bhat, who replaced Burhan Wani after his death July 2016, is reported to have been the brains behind using social media as a weapon.

The Jammu and Kashmir home department had lifted its month-long ban after imposing it on 26 April, on Friday evening around 8:30 pm.
