SRINAGAR: After the alleged hit list of 39 people, including journalists and political activists, appeared on a website, the J&K Police has increased the surveillance and offered safe accommodation to scribes to prevent any militant attacks on them.
The hit list includes 27 Kashmir-based journalists and 12 political and social activists. The post, which alleged that the 39 people were working under the Indian payroll, was deleted later. The list has allegedly categorised the 39 as A+, A, B and C.
The police have registered an FIR against the URL handler for uploading the posts prejudicial to the integrity and the sovereignty of the country. The police have recently installed many high-resolution CCTV cameras at the Press Enclave in Srinagar to keep round-the-clock watch movement of people there.
