According to the official sources the letter was addressed to the Imam of Jamia Masjid, Sopore by an unidentified group.

The non local laborers are the Army informers and have settled under well thought conspiracy to keep an eye on each Kashmiri, read the letter.

The letter was given to the local priest by unidentified men and passed the letter to the local committee and advised to read the letter in the mosque.

The Deputy Inspector General, police, North Kashmir said that the authenticity of the letter is being checked. The recent posters in the region had a reference to the non local laborers too, told the official. These posters had warned the liquor shops, cable operators and gamblers as well.

In Sopore, there are nearly 25,000 non local laborers working in the apple orchids in the region.
