Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir’s criminal investigation department (CID) late Tuesday evening registered an FIR against a journalist for posting inflammatory content on his Facebook social networking account.
Sources in the state police department told Media Sources that the counter intelligence wing of the CID here registered the FIR against Ramesh Khazanche, a migrant Kashmiri Pandit scribe living in New Delhi, for posting inflammatory, defamatory and malicious content on his Facebook account.
“Yes, an FIR has been lodged against the accused for posting inflammatory, defamatory and malicious content on his Facebook account that could stoke passions in the state,” a senior police officer told Media Sources here.
Reports also said Khazanche was being picked up for interrogation by the sleuths of the state CID on Tuesday:
A senior police official told a case was filed against Ramesh Khazanchi in Jammu after he posted insulting remarks on PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and Dukhtaran-e-Milat Chief Asiya Andrabi. He had also posted anti-Islam and anti-Muslim posts, which could stoke communal passions in the Valley. A legal action to block the content has been taken with relevant quarters. Technical analysis would be also taken to act against the offender. The Facebook account of Ramesh, a Delhi-based pandit reveals his hate is directed either against Kashmiri Muslims or Islam. It was learnt he leveled false allegations against his pandit colleague for her “moderate opinion” for which he had to sought apology later. On Monday, when the Facebook was hogged with Shivratri wishes, Ramesh posted a couple of hate-filled posts. “Mufti is dead. His Islamist daughter Mehboob* is all hijab clad like her Pak-Islamist sw***AsiyaAndrabi…All Muslim sw*** your time is up. Mass graves await you all…” he wrote..
