PESHAWAR, 20 November: To avoid any possible untoward incident and maintain law and order situation on the occasion of chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain (R/A), the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government had suspended mobile service in the provincial metropolis on Sunday.

The service was later restored after evening. The local administration had also imposed section 144 in the city.

Local residents have expressed strong resentment over the suspension of mobile services and said the government did not inform them in advance and that was why they faced lots of problems.
