NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday flagged rumour-mongering through the social media as a major challenge before police in the country. Police organisations should tie up with reputed institutes such as the IITs and the IIMs for innovative solutions in policing through technology and management, he said.

The minister was speaking at the inauguration of the second conference of young Superintendents of Police. Insisting on promoting good morale in the forces, he advised senior police officers to behave in a respectable and decent manner with their sub-ordinates and those in the constabulary.

Interacting with the SPs and Commandant rank officers of various state police and central paramilitary forces, Singh said the menace of spreading malicious news and rumours using various social media platforms is a “big challenge”.
