Suspicious ISD calls to people in J-K raise security concerns; police issue advisory

Scores of individuals in Jammu and Kashmir receiving calls and WhatsApp messages from suspicious international mobile numbers in a bid to spread rumours before the upcoming G20 events has emerged as the latest security challenge in the Union territory.

The local police have issued an advisory cautioning the public against these numbers and urging them to remain vigilant. One such call from a suspicious number stated, ”G20 delegates—Kashmir is not India. The Modi regime is ill. G20 members boycott it in Srinagar — save Kashmiri Pandits.” Similar messages are being circulated on WhatsApp, attempting to incite trouble and instigate a boycott of the G20 event.

The Jammu police has warned the general public to exercise caution and refrain from responding to any communication from unknown overseas phone numbers. These numbers are responsible for spreading anti-national messages and propaganda.
