As per the local sources, the poster reads, “Some people in Kashmir are trying to defame the freedom struggle by participating in the elections. Those people are warned to stay away from elections, otherwise their end will be gruesome and they will be killed in such a brutal way that the whole Kashmir nation will remember it. They (collaborators) should mend their ways at the earliest or face dire consequences.”

Meanwhile, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla, Abdul Qayoom refuted the reports, saying that “we are working on ground and no such posters were visible anywhere in the district Baramulla.”
