Police on Wednesday said it had lodged an FIR against a news channel for showing two Kashmiri students as militants.
A police spokesman said that pictures of Farhan Shafi, a Class 12 student, and Farhat Rashid, a diploma holder, were telecast as militants in place of a slain militant, Farhan Wani.
Farhan Wani was killed in a gunfight with forces in Larnoo village on January 9.
“The news channel ‘V6’ on the same day showed both the innocent youths as militants. A case has been registered and investigation has started,” the spokesman said.
