Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday filed a case under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and for public mischief under Indian Penal Code (IPC) over a letter attributed to former Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani having called for a strike on July 8 and 13.

A local news gathering agency Global News Service (GNS) reported that the letter was deemed fake by police and not issued by the nonagenarian who resigned as chairman of Hurriyat Conference last week.

“As per the family sources of SAS Geelani the letter is fake and not issued by him. This is published from Pakistan,” police said in a tweet. “Police is taking action against those who are circulating it through different social media platforms to instigate violence and create L&O (law and order) problems,” it said.

Later in the day, police announced that a case (FIR No 265/2020) under section 13 ULA(P) Act, 505 IPC (public mischief) has been registered in police station Budgam. “Further investigation is in progress,” the police added. (GNS)
