The State police have advised people to exercise restraint while posting content on social media, as several instances of morphed contents and videos have come to the fore. The law enforcing agency has warned of penal action against the violators. “The unfortunate incident at North Tripura was a law & order issue but in social media videos are being circulated to give incident the colour of communal violence. Sharing such videos with intent to spread ethnic hatred is a punishable legal offence. Strict legal action would be taken against those sharing such videos and spreading rumors. Peace loving people of Tripura are requested not to circulate and believe such rumors.” In a notification said Tripura Police.
