The Tripura police, on Thursday, said that it is conducting investigations into the recent communal violence in the state in an “impartial manner”.
The Tripura police was reacting to “some posts in the social media” that it claimed to be “projecting doubts on impartiality of Tripura police” in the investigation process.
“Some posts in social media projecting doubts on impartiality of Tripura police in taking action against the perpetrators of recent communal incidents have been noticed. It is reiterated that Police is investigating these cases in a complete impartial and lawful manner,” the Tripura police said.
It added: “Appropriate action is being taken against anyone found involved in these incidents.”
The police in Tripura further informed that six persons have been arrested thus far, who were “involved in various communal incident cases”.
The Tripura police stated that it has also registered cases against some social media posts.
“Yesterday, North Tripura district (police) had arrested four persons finding them involved in spreading malicious propaganda with a view to creating hatred between two religious’ groups,” the police said.
It added: “Tripura Police once again appeals to all not to believe unverified posts on social media and not to like/retweet those posts since it amounts to rumour mongering.”
