Offensive Content By Student: J&K DGP says case registered, investigation on, will be taken to logical conclusion

Jammu, Nov 30 (UNI) After taking cognizance of uploading offensive content by a student, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has launched the investigation, which will be taken to a logical conclusion and no one will be allowed to hurt the religious feelings of any community, and nobody will be allowed to use this incident for malicious purposes either, said Director General of Police, J&K, R.R. Swain, at a press briefing here on Thursday.
At the very outset, the DGP said, “We respect the honour and dignity of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), and the police is well aware of its duties and responsibilities to take action against anyone trying to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere.”
He appealed to the general public that they should not fall for the vicious designs of the anti-national and anti-social elements, who, by taking undue advantage of this incident, are attempting to disturb the communal harmony and brotherhood for which Kashmir has been known for ages.
He said that police have registered a case regarding the uploading of offensive content, an investigation is underway, evidence is being collected, and they are assured that the case will be taken to a logical conclusion.
Swain informed that, after discussions with the law officers and approval from the competent authority, the law will be made operational here under 144 Criminal Procedure Act, under which action will be taken against those uploading, sharing videos, posts, texts, and audio on social media having the potential to trigger communal frenzy, promote terrorism, separatism, etc., adding that by these activities, at times people’s lives get disturbed, businesses get affected, schools and colleges get closed, and the whole system gets disrupted.
The DGP said that J&K police are also investigating the people who, by taking undue advantage of the incident, are trying to disturb the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that we have to make a distinction between the innocent statement and the statement issued with malicious intentions.
In response to a query regarding attempts by Pakistan to vitiate the atmosphere here, the DGP said that there is no doubt about it; a number of messages are being designed from across the border and circulated on social media, adding that some people here are using these messages to disturb the peaceful atmosphere.
“Some people benefitted from these activities, which he said was a known fact, and sought the cooperation of the people to foil these evil conspiracies,” he added.
