The Tripura Police also filed many criminal cases and started taking action against more than 70 persons including Supreme Court lawyers, activists and religious campaigners.

A senior police official said that the investigating officers of the Tripura police have in separate letters to the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube authorities sought details about the 101 accounts from which fake, provocative and twisted posts were made about the reported incidents in Tripura last month.

The official, while refusing to be named, said that the authorities of the social media platforms have also started taking actions against those account holders.

“Cases were filed against 71 persons under the various provisions of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and Indian Penal Code (IPC). Those who are booked in these cases were asked to appear before the investigating officers on November 10,” the official said.

The police have so far arrested eight people in different districts.

A police official said that strict actions are being taken against those who are trying to create communal disharmony in the society.

The official said that permanent and mobile patrolling security of the religious institutions and places were enhanced in around 150 mixed populated areas.

“Though no fresh incidents of attack and intimidation was reported from anywhere in the state during the past two weeks, the security forces remain alert to foil any attempt to disturb the communal harmony in the bordering and mixed populated state,” the police official said.

After a few incidents involving the minorities, the north Tripura district authorities had promulgated prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC in Panisagar and Dharmanagar sub-divisions on October 26 as a precautionary measure, which still continues.

After the series of communal violence in Bangladesh last month, more than 50 organisations and political parties including All India Imam’s Council and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have organised rallies in different parts of Tripura condemning the attacks on the minorities in the neighbouring country.
