The battle of security forces is not against terrorists only but against the narrative which is being spread by hundreds of fake social media handles of which 8000 fake social media handles—facebook, twitter and instagram. Their handlers are sitting across the world and their aim is to incite trouble and glorify terrorism. They peddle wrong information. Police is acting against them under the ambit of law after differentiating the genuine and not-genuine. “We will act against them under IT Act 61. If need arises, we will catch-hold of them through Interpol.”DGP Jammu and Kashmir Police
