J&K Police register case against TV channel for running incorrect news

An FIR was filed in main Pulwama town police station against NewsX and its correspondents for running a wrong news about the death of a youth in police firing despite repeated assertions by police that no such incident had taken place.

The news led to an angry protest in the district leading to imposition of curfew in the area again this morning besides leaving some security personnel injured in stone-pelting.
District officials had to go round the town announcing that no one was killed.
The TV channel later aired an apology for running the news.
