Bhopal: Gwalior police have registered a case against a Kashmiri student over his comment on social media supporting Pakistan after the Champions Trophy final.
A case under IPC section 153-A (disturbing communal harmony) and the provisions of Information Technology Act was registered against Seh Mudassar, who hails from Kashmir, after his comment on a Facebook post created tension in Mahalgaon area of the city, additional superintendent of police (ASP) Abhishek Tiwari said.
A boy from the area — where Mudassar, a postgraduate student of Jiwaji University, has been living for the last two years — wrote a post on Facebook congratulating Pakistan for its victory while expressing disappointment over India's performance in the 18 June match.
Reacting to the post, Mudassar made a pro-Pakistan comment.
It created tension in the area, and the boy's parents scolded their son over the issue. Mudassar then left for Kashmir, the ASP said.
A group of ten persons allegedly visited the boy's house on Friday and created a ruckus over the issue. Police registered a case against them too, Tiwari said.
While nobody has been arrested, security in the area has been stepped up, he added.
