The CRPF on Sunday asked people to be cautious about "fake pictures" being circulated online of body parts of its soldiers killed in the Pulwama attack.

In an advisory, it said it has noticed that on social media "some miscreants were trying to circulate fake pictures of body parts of our martyrs to invoke hatred while we stand united".

"Please do not circulate/share/like such photographs or posts. Report such content at webpro@crpf.gov.in," the CRPF said on its Twitter handle.

Since February 14, a number of photographs of badly mutilated bodies were circulated on social media, which has evoked outrage among people.

It also issued another advisory about "fake news" about harassment of students from Kashmir by various miscreants on social media. "CRPF helpline has enquired about complaints about harassment and found them incorrect. These are attempts to invoke hatred Please do not circulate such posts," it said.

Amid reports about harassment of Kashmiri students and traders outside Jammu and Kashmir, several people on social media had offered anyone harassed could approach them for accommodation.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Madhur Verma tweeted, "security has been strengthened all across the national capital, including minority dominated areas. Visibility of police personnel has been increased. We will ensure the safety and security of every citizen including Kashmiri inhabitants and students living in Delhi."

The Ministry of Home Affairs had on Saturday issued an advisory to all states and Union territories to take measures to ensure the safety and security of Kashmiris.
