Jammu and Kashmir police has said that action will be taken against few local media persons and channels for peddling ‘fake news’ in the wake of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s death.

IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar appealed to general public not to pay any heed to the rumours being maliciously spread by the anti-national elements especially across the border with an objective to disturb the prevalent peaceful atmosphere in the valley. “Several social media platforms including Kashmir Media Service which are running from Pakistan have been trying to spread fake news and videos to instigate miscreants to disturb situations.

Even a few local media persons and channels have been found spreading fake news. We are observing it, maintaining evidence and appropriate actions shall be taken against them,” the IGP said, adding that “Such elements are advised not to spread fake news without consulting law enforcement agencies. Moreover, all the police and security forces personnel have been sensitized regarding facilitating students appearing in different examinations.”—(KNO)
