J&K Police appeals general public to be vigilant against mischievous persons posting their photos with DGP, other officers on Social Media without permission


Jammu.April 24…It has come to the notice that some persons who have photographs along with DGP, J&K or with other senior officers of police, which many a times come to be allowed because of participation in social and cultural events and occasions in which such persons are incidentally present, are posting such photos on their social media accounts without DGP’s permission or permission of the senior officers.

Firstly, this is not part of good manners: to post a photo in public domain that was taken in a social or cultural event perhaps as a goodwill gesture without the permission of the person.

Secondly, it is outright criminal and punishable, if the photo is being used and leveraged to intimidate or influence others to extort or part with money or promise governmental benefits by brandishing the photo as a connection to authority.

Members of general public, community members, fellow citizens, brothers and sisters, gullible villagers and city dwellers, students and workers who are all dear to DGP and are valuable community members and citizens to the Jammu and Kashmir police may please note that such shenanigans by unscrupulous elements should be exposed and no one should fear of any harm from such elements.
