Fahad Shah

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday claimed to have arrested Fahad Shah, a journalist for his alleged involvement in uploading “anti-national” content on social media.

A police spokesman in a statement said that it was reliably learnt by Pulwama Police that some Facebook users and portals have been uploading anti-national content including photographs, videos and posts with criminal intention to create fear among public and the content so uploaded can provoke the public to disturb law and order.

“It was also learnt that these Facebook users are uploading such posts which tantamount to glorifying the militant activities and causing dent to the image of law enforcing agencies besides causing ill-will and disaffection against the country.”
