After threat posters in Sopore, a poster by banned militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) has surfaced in the Pakherpora town of Budgam district in central Kashmir, warning police informers of dire consequences.

The poster with the stamp of a divisional commander of the outfit appeared at a bus stand in the town and was spotted by local residents after Friday morning prayers.

Warning people against becoming “informers of security agencies”, the poster said that the banned outfit was keeping an eye on the activities of suspected people. “Only last year, four of our Mujahid brothers were martyred. They were killed as some locals conspired with security agencies. We have identified those involved and will teach them a lesson after completing our investigation,” the poster read.

Calling the threat the “last warning”, the poster said: “Conspiring with police and security agencies will not be tolerated.”

Police are investigating the matter but so far consider it mischief by some local youth. “We are investigating the matter but so far the poster looks like some local mischief,” said inspector general, Kashmir range, Javeed Gillani.

A series of attacks were carried out on telecom operators in Sopore recently. The attacks followed similar posters that surfaced against the companies in the north Kashmir town in May.
