Internet services have been restored in Bhainsa town, bringing respite to mobile phone users and customers of banks and other sectors. The services were suspended on Monday following communal clashes in the town on Sunday.

Internet services were suspended to curb the spread of circulation of fake messages and videos across erstwhile Adilabad district in the wake of the communal tensions in Bhainsa from 10 am on Monday. 

Consequently, users of various telecom networks were virtually cut off from the mainstream. Similarly, customers of banks could not make transactions.

Many other sectors such as health and government departments were also hit due to the blockage of the internet. Users were forced to visit neighboring Nizamabad, Peddapalli, Jagtial districts for accessing social media platforms and e-bank applications. They also struggled to stay in touch with their family members and friends. However, the services were restored on Friday at 6 pm.
