Five residents of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri and Poonch districts, working in other states, were booked for posting on Facebook "fake updates and sensitive remarks" having potential to disturb peace in the state, a senior police officer said on Thursday.
During routine surveillance on social media platforms, a team of Rajouri police came across the five Facebook users who made sensitive remarks that could emerge as grave threat to peace and order in the state, Rajouri Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Yougal Manhas said.
They have been identified as Zaheer Chowdhary, Zakir Shah Bukhari, Imran Qazi, Naziq Hussain and Sardar Tariq Khan, the police officer said.
Manhas said all the five accused work outside Jammu and Kashmir.
The SSP said the process to get their passports cancelled will be started very soon.
The police officer also appealed to residents of Rajouri and Poonch, working in other states, to make proper use of social media and not to indulge in any act which is against Constitution.
