Curfew was imposed in Bhaderwah town in Jammu and Kashmir`s Doda district on Thursday following communal tension triggered by some social media posts, police said.
Appropriate action has been taken under the law and a case has been registered against the accused at Bhaderwah police station.
“Those who take the law into their hands will not be spared,” a police source said. The police said they are keeping a close watch on the situation and would act against anyone found violating law and order.
A purported video showing instigating announcements being made from a mosque in Bhaderwah was posted by miscreants on social media.
