SRINAGAR, July 02, 2021: Anyone who attempts dissemination and endorsement of baseless rumours to disrupt peace will be dealt with strictly : SP Kulgam
Police has taken a strong note of mischievous activity of some persons on social media sites who are making false claims that Zakir Bashir Naik (S/O Bashir Ahmad Naik R/O Chimmer DH Pora, the terrorist who was eliminated on 30 June 2021 in an encounter at Chimmer DH Pora) was not a terrorist. The claim is totally baseless. The fact is that he had joined terrorist ranks in June 2021 as confirmed from various field and intelligence agencies. Also, he was the first person who used deadly force against security forces cordoning the area. In self defence, retaliatory action was undertaken in which he was neutralised.
Unfortunately, on social media platforms, some miscreants are spreading false but sensitive updates regarding the matter that could emerge as threat to peace and order.
SP Kulgam appeals to everyone to make use of social media platforms in a careful, positive and responsible manner. And warns all the mischievous elements that whosoever attempts to instigate the public by spreading baseless rumours will be dealt with sternly. (PTK)
