Police in Srinagar have registered a case against a student of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar for uploading sensitive content that allegedly targeted the religious sentiments of a particular community.
The case, with FIR No. 156/23 under sections 295A, 153A, and 153 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), was registered at PS Nigeen on November 28, 2023, following a communication from NIT authorities.
Police have appealed to the public to refrain from spreading rumors or false information related to the incident. They have also cautioned against falling prey to false propaganda initiated by anti-social elements, warning that legal action will be taken against those found involved in provocative acts or instigation.
The clarification comes in the wake of tensions and concerns surrounding the incident at NIT Srinagar. On Tuesday, local students of the institute held a massive protest against the incident and demanded action against the non-local student who had uploaded a derogatory video on social media.
