According to an official statement, mobile internet services shall remain suspended in Haryana's districts of Sonipat and Jhajjar till Saturday evening. 

Amidst ongoing agitation against the contentious agriculture laws, internet services were earlier suspended in some areas of the state "to prevent disturbance of peace and public order". 

"The Haryana Government has extended the suspension of mobile internet services (2G/3G/4G/CDMA/GPRS), SMS services (only bulk SMS) and all dongle services provided on mobile networks except the voice calls in two districts, Sonipat and Jhajjar, till 5 pm on February 6", read the statement. 

Any person found violating the order will be liable for legal action under relevant provisions, the order said.

The state government had ordered the suspension of mobile internet services in three districts bordering Delhi -- Sonipat, Jhajjar and Palwal – after the breakout of violence in the national capital during the farmers’ tractor rally on the Republic Day.

After January 26, the mobile internet services were suspended in 17 districts but were subsequently restored, barring for the Sonipat and Jhajjar districts.

Opposition parties had also condemned the curbs on mobile internet, saying the move would affect students preparing for various examinations.
