Government sends notice to Twitter; attempts to stop spread of fake news
In an attempt to put a curb on propagation of fake news about Kashmir, the Superintendent of Srinagar Police has sent an official letter to Twitter asking it to share Twitter user 'WSK' (@WajSKhan)'s registered email Id, his mobile number, IP address, and any other details.
He has also highlighted the intensity of the situation by stating that the tweets of the user have the potential to aggravate the situation, endangering the lives of the people in Kashmir.
The CRPF had pointed out the content of the tweet posted by 'WSK' as a baseless rumour regarding the situation of Kashmir post the abolishment of Article 370. The CRPF clarified that security forces are working for peace in the state.
