Sia: Misuse of social media: SIA conducts searches in 4 Kashmir districts | India News

SRINAGAR: The State Investigation Agency (SIA) of J&K Police on Tuesday carried out searches at several locations in Srinagar, Anantnag, Pulwama and Kupwara districts in a case pertaining to misuse of social media platforms for unlawful and secessionist activities.
According to a spokesperson of the agency, the pre-dawn searches were aimed at uncovering individuals and groups involved in propagating anti-India sentiments and promoting terror activities through social media in collaboration with their foreign handlers.
“The identified entities are suspected of conniving with foreign associates to further their nefarious agenda, which includes instigating and supporting acts of terrorism. Additionally, these entities have been targeting government servants, hindering their ability to perform their lawful duties,” the spokesman said.
The searches led to the seizure of substantial digital and physical evidence, including mobile phones and SIM cards, which would be meticulously analysed to build a strong case against the accused entities, the SIA said.
