The Kashmir Press Club condemned recent cases of harassment and summoning of journalists by police in the Valley. “The female photojournalist was summoned to Cyber Police Station, Air Cargo in Srinagar on April 18. However, after the Kashmir Press Club and Directorate of Information intervened, police dropped the summon order,” a statement read.

J&K PDP termed it a systematic pattern of assault on freedom of expression. National Conference said that freedom of expression was never so curtailed.

Police, in a statement, said that the Cyber Police Station, Kashmir, received information through reliable sources that a Facebook user is frequently uploading anti-national posts with criminal intention.

“The posts can provoke public to disturb the law and order and glorify anti-national activities. The cyber police called her to police station not Air Cargo Complex,” the statement read.
