Qazi Shibli, editor of The Kashmiriyat has been summoned by the Cyber Police in Srinagar for unknown reasons.
Shibli said that he got a call from the Cyber Police station at around 2:15 PM on Thursday asking him to present himself in the Cyber Police Station in Srinagar on Friday.
Shibli was released recently after nine months of detention after he reported about the deployment of Armed Forces across Jammu Kashmir ahead of abrogation of Article 370 and 35A in August last year.
The Kashmiriyat has recently relaunched its operations and has been receiving massive support from readers worldwide.
