To put a tap on any messages or videos in the rape case verdict by CBI court in Panchkula Dera against Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Haryana Home Secretary Ram Niwas declared that Mobile internet and data services will remain suspended in Haryana, Punjab and the joint capital Chandigarh from today.
When will the services suspend?
According to reports, the mobile internet and data services will be suspended from midnight today and will remain suspended for next 72 hours. The move is aimed to discontinue the spreading of videos and messages that are being viral on the social media and that may trigger violence in the states.
What will happen?

This move may also affect several genuine users who require the internet services for professional commitments.
