Claiming that overall situation in valley remained peaceful, Inspector General of Police Kashmir Range Abdul Gani Mir Sunday said that certain people are trying hard to vitiate the atmosphere by spreading rumours.
“Rumours of a young boy being killed in Sumbal, were floated by certain fake identity holders on Facebook. Reportedly one person with Facebook identity as Syed Naseem had also updated about death of a youth in Safa Pora which was not true. He later removed this post. All these Facebook miscreants are being identified and action would be taken against them,” Mir said adding that in this regard a case FIR No. 57/2013 U/S 67 IT Act and 505 RPC has been registered in Police Station Kothibagh.
“Those who are spreading rumours will be dealt according to law. We are identifying these people who are spreading rumours on social networking sites,” he said.
Mir has appealed to all the people not to heed to the rumours. News channels are requested to publish or broadcast news, after confirmation.
