‘Guide wards about social media usage’
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) S Bhupathi has appealed parents and teachers to alert and guide their wards to not use social media for wrong purpose.
“Youngsters use the internet and social media to defame people, which has a negative impact on people,’’ he said, and stresses on proper guidance from their parents and teachers.
“Youth should not indulge in such activities. Defaming someone by misusing social media, is a criminal offence and police will take strict action in the case,” he added.
