Be vigilant against mischievous persons posting their photos with DGP, other officers on Social Media without permission, Police to general public

Jammu Kashmir Police has asked people to abstain from posting photos on social media platforms taken along with the police brass including the Director General of Police.

Police said that it has come to the notice that some persons who have photographs along with DGP, J&K or with other senior officers of police, which many times come to be allowed because of participation in social and cultural events and occasions in which such persons are incidentally present, are posting such photos on their social media accounts without DGP’s permission or permission of the senior officers.

Firstly, this is not part of good manners: to post a photo in the public domain that was taken at a social or cultural event perhaps as a goodwill gesture without the permission of the person.

Secondly, it is outright criminal and punishable, if the photo is being used and leveraged to intimidate or influence others to extort or part with money or promise governmental benefits by brandishing the photo as a connection to authority.

“Members of the general public, community members, fellow citizens, brothers and sisters, gullible villagers and city dwellers, students and workers who are all dear to DGP and are valuable community members and citizens to the Jammu and Kashmir police may please note that such trickeries and mischiefs by unscrupulous elements should be exposed and no one should fear of any harm from such elements,” the police said.
