    New Delhi lifts ban on DAWN website, PTV broadcasts


    NEW DELHI, July 14: With a near-cessation of hostilities in Kargil, India has lifted its informal ban on PTV broadcasts and on Dawn's website. Indian media reports said the state-owned Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL), India's overseas communication system, had blocked access of internet users to Dawn's website since June 25 after fighting intensified in Kargil.
    The Hindu newspaper quoted VSNL acting chairman and managing director, Amitabh Kumar, as saying the move was made on instructions from higher authorities. He did not identify "higher authorities".
    As for lifting the ban on PTV broadcasts, cable operators said they took the decision on "their own" after it was perceived that the nine-week old military operation in the Himalayas was drawing to a close. -
