Jammu and Kashmir police on Wednesday asked media persons not to carry any live coverage of encounter sites or any other law and order situation.
IGP (Kashmir Zone), Vijay Kumar has directed media persons not to interfere in professional and bonafide duties of the armed forces at sites of encounters and during law and order situations.
“Media persons should not come closer to encounter sites and law and order situations and they should not carry live coverage of these situations.
“The freedom of speech and expression is subject to reasonable restrictions. They should not violate other people’s right to guarantee of life or putting the national security in jeopardy”, IGP told a local news agency.
He said no operational context should be carried which is likely to incite violence or promotes anti-national sentiments.
