J&K Police books man for criticizing the government's move
A case was registered today against a man for his alleged tweet criticizing the government's move to suspend anti-terror operations in J&K. "The police in Kashmir took cognizance of the matter when it observed that the tweet amounts to an offense under the law," police said. They also contacted the authorities in Twitter India requesting them to provide the details of this Twitter user.
Earlier, the police had booked two other Twitter users
The man, believed to be a Kashmiri Pandit, posted on Twitter: "Just heard, 5 CRPF jawans martyred in Pampore. #RamzanCeasefire is working. Question is who is it working for?" National Conference leader Omar Abdullah reacted to the post. The man has since deleted the tweet in question. Earlier, the police had booked two other Twitter users for posting hate messages on their handles.
Omar Abdullah reacts to the post
Given that NO ONE else has this “news” I think it’s safe to assume this is fake news spread with a malicious intent, the subtext being Muslim terrorists have killed Hindu CRPF jawans. These sorts of blatant lies must face legal action. pic.twitter.com/Y61SmfuRtD— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) May 21, 2018
