Jammu and Kashmir Police wrote a letter to Twitter asking for details of one of its accounts that have been spreading "rumours through his tweets very frequently which are leading to law and order situation in the Kashmir Valley".
The Superintendent of Police, Police Component Srinagar demanded details of the Twitter handle registered as "WSK" "@WajSKhan" having Twitter User ID: "74964902"
The letter to Twitter said: "@WajSKhan is spreading rumours through his tweets very frequently which are leading to law and order situation in Kashmir valley which in turn is a threat to lives of the general public and that of security forces deployed in the Kashmir Valley to maintain law and order in view of recent developments.
"The tweets of the above-mentioned twitter handle could lead to clashes between various communities and hence have the potential to aggravate the situation further endangering the lives of the general public.
"As such, it is requested to kindly provide below-mentioned details of Admin/User of above mentioned Twitter account and report thereof including the following details be submitted to this office immediately for further necessary action.
"The URL of the said account is: https://twitter.com/WajSKhan Registered Email Id. Registered Mobile number of user. Registration/Creation IP with Date and Time. Login IP's." And asked for "any other access details".
This comes after, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Monday dismissed as "malicious" a tweet from this account about an alleged rift between the central force and the Jammu and Kashmir Police.
Earlier, four Twitter handles have been suspended after the government asked Twitter to remove certain accounts linked to people from outside Jammu and Kashmir which are spreading rumours on the platform.
