Srinagar, June 6

Police here on Thursday registered a criminal case against a non-local medical student enrolled at Srinagar Government Medical College (GMC) for allegedly posting religiously sensitive content on a caller app.

“Srinagar police has taken cognisance of the incident of posting of sensitive content against religious sentiments of a particular community by one student of GMC Srinagar,” a police officer said.

The officer said the police have filed a case in the matter after the receipt of a communication from the GMC Srinagar administration.

The officer appealed to the “common public” to desist from spreading rumours/false information and not to fall prey to propaganda of anti-social elements.

Legal action shall be taken against those who are found to be involved in provocative act/instigation, the person said.
