Taking cognizance of the circulation of some statements and posters attributed to the death anniversary of a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist, the police have registered a case and started investigation into the matter, the J&K Police said on Tuesday.

"The miscreants are trying to incite violence and create law and order problems in the Kashmir Valley. A fake statement on behalf of Syed Ali Shah Geelani was issued by an absconded person who is presently residing in PoK. As per the sources of SAS Geelani, the letter is fake and has not been issued by him," a police press release said.

It added that another poster is being circulated by the miscreants to mislead the general public so as to cause fear and alarm and incite the miscreants to commit offences.

"These posters and fake statements are being circulated at different places and uploaded on different social media platforms to glorify the slain terrorist. Some miscreants are forwarding such malicious and fake propaganda from across the border and within the UT through various social media platforms, asking public to observe strike on July 8 and July 13.

"The purported objective underlying such act is to propagate secessionist ideas and peddle rumour mongering in order to terrorise the general public and create commotion so that a strike is observed and people indulge in unlawful activates and disrupt law and order," the police release said.

"A case under relevant sections of the law has been registered in Budgam and investigation is on," it added.

The police have requested people not to pay any heed to such provoking posters and fake statements.
