KARACHI: Mobile services in several parts of the country were suspended from Sunday night to subvert possible terror threats received by the Interior Ministry on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The services of almost all the cellular companies have been closed in Karachi, Multan, Quetta and Lahore. The service will be restored in Lahore at 11am on Monday, a private television channel reported.
The measure has caused severe inconvenience for the people busy in preparations for the Eid. On the eve of Eid, mobile users exchanged greetings with friends, relatives and family members inland and overseas through text messages and phone calls.
