Police file FIR against TOI reporter

Srinagar: Police registered an FIR against Time of India’s Srinagar correspondent M Saleem Pandit for his news report about “stone-pelting attacks on tourist vehicles” which the police said is untrue and not factual. 

The police denied the stone-pelting incidents and filed an FIR on the basis of a complaint submitted by ten local travel agencies who alleged that Pandit’s report was false and written with “malicious intention to disrupt the peaceful tourist season” in Kashmir.

The complaint claimed that the news report had “created an atmosphere of threat amongst the citizens of the country”.

The police, however, admitted that two tourists had been injured “because the vehicles came in the middle of an area where pelting was going on”.
