Internet was first cut off in the state on May 3 after the escalation of ethnic conflict, and the shutdown has been extended through multiple government orders since then.

“…To thwart the design and activities of anti-national and anti-social elements and to maintain peace and communal harmony and to prevent any loss of life or danger to public/private property, it has become necessary to take adequate measures to maintain law and order in public interest, by stopping the spread of misinformation and false rumours through various social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc…,” said an order issued by the governor.
