In a statement to GNS, the police said that a hate-monger identified as Mohammad Irfan Bhat son of Mohammad Maqbool Bhat, resident of Takiya Wagoora Kreeri Baramulla has been booked under PSA by Budgam Police for recording and uploading a video, spreading hate and justifying the killing of an artiste Amreen Bhat who was shot dead by ‘terrorists’ in Hashroo Chadoora on May 25, 2022.
The police spokesman further stated that the act of uploading such hateful video, justifying the killing of artiste Ambreen Bhat on the YouTube channel has not only caused alarm and fear amongst the class of people performing art, singing, dancing etc. but also the families associated with them. Moreover, this act also amounts to supporting militant acts, and such videos have a tendency to make more people vulnerable to such attacks.
