Cases against persons for uploading morphed pictures in Kashmir

A police spokesman said that efforts were on to trace the origin of the video clipping, purportedly showing four men being paraded naked by uniformed personnel in Kashmir, and apprehend the persons responsible for morphing and uploading it.

"Some miscreants are making repeated attempts to upload morphed pictures on YouTube against security forces to incite people. Two cases already stand registered in this connection with the Crime Branch," he said here.

The video clipping first appeared on YouTube and then was widely circulated on Facebook social networking site.

The spokesman said uploading transmission of such pictures is criminal offence punishable under section 66-A of Information Technology Act.

"It is also punishable under Section 505 of Ranbir Panel Code which is a cognizable offence and attracts a rigorous imprisonment for three years and fine," the spokesman said, requesting the general public to cooperate with the government for maintenance of public order.

"The general public is advised not to fall prey to such unverified and baseless rumours. They may dial 100 for any information or assistance," he said.
