A poster of hitherto-unknown group of stone-pelters has appeared in Srinagar, threatening girls against riding two-wheelers or they would be set on fire.

The association also asked mosque management committees to raise slogans and play anthems after every prayer.

A police official said the poster is being examined and those behind it are being traced.
