Agartala, Nov 6: Tripura Police have taken up a case against a total of 102 Twitter accounts under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for spreading fake and distorted information related to the recent violence that took place at Panisagar.
It may be mentioned that the Tripura police in a series of tweets said, “Some posts in social media projecting doubts on the impartiality of Tripura police in taking action against the perpetrators of recent communal incidents have been noticed…”
Notably, Tripura Police on November 3 booked an advocate under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) for allegedly sharing fake information on social media on the recent violence in Panisagar, where a mosque, few houses, and shops were reportedly vandalised by activists of Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
The High Court of Tripura also served a notice to the state government over the recent Panisagar violence after taking suo-motu cognizance and seeking a reply on action taken before November 10, 2021.
