Internet services, which had been suspended in many "sensitive" districts of Haryana, were restored this evening after the Jats called off their proposed march to Delhi tomorrow.

"Internet services, which had been suspended yesterday, were restored this evening," an official spokesman said here.

The authorities had earlier suspended all Internet services and bulk messaging facility on mobile networks till 9 am on Monday, in order to prevent rumour-mongering.

Liquor shops, which were to remain closed in the "sensitive" districts till 9 am on Monday as per the earlier orders, can now follow their regular timings, the spokesman

said.

Prohibitory orders under section 144, CrPC were imposed and Internet services suspended in many "sensitive" districts, including Rohtak, Jhajjar, Sonepat, Hisar, Sirsa, Bhiwani and Kaithal, as a precautionary measure in the wake of the Jats' earlier plan to gherao the Parliament tomorrow.

The spokesman said the deputy commissioners of the districts concerned will take a decision on lifting the prohibitory orders shortly.

The Jat leaders decided to call off their march towards Delhi after a four-hour meeting with Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union ministers Birender Singh and PP Chaudhary in Delhi earlier in the day.
