(MENAFN- Kashmir Observer) Jammu- A video showing a Bolero vehicle with plainclothes men carrying weapons went viral triggering panic among people, thereby prompting the Police to clarify that the vehicle was ferrying the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel.

Some people shared a video on facebook and other social media platforms questioning security for allowing such a suspicious vehicle with armed men on board with number plate hidden by a newspaper piece.


“As confirmed the vehicle in the video was carrying the CAPF personnel and some social media handles unnecessarily try to create panic among general masses and spread misinformation,” said a police spokesman.

The spokesman said that people are advised not to pay heed to rumour and fearmongering.

As per sources, the number plates of vehicles carrying security forces are covered.
