Goa Police have advised public to exercise restraint in
posting content on social media as any inflammatory content can divert
attention of the administration and the police forces who are actively engaged
in war against covid-19.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Jaspal Singh said that
instances have been noticed wherein people have morphed old video clips and
tried to project them as related to current events particularly police beating
certain individuals.

“Such content has the potential to cause disaffection
among communities and tear out the social fabric of society”, said Singh.

He informed that certain individuals have been identified
and warned to be careful in future. “Any repetition of such a conduct would
invite penal action” said Singh.

Singh advised people to
verify the authenticity of the content which can be easily done online on
Google search by typing out the keywords about the said post. No unverified
content be posted or forwarded, he said.

Singh said that the top most priority at this time is to
contain the spread of Covid-19 by unitedly fighting against the disease.

“Any inflammatory
content can divert attention of the administration and police forces who are
actively engaged in war against Covid-19” he informed. Singh said that people
should not believe in rumors and contact police control room (PCR) at 112 or
SP, PCR Pankaj Kumar Singh on 7875756016.
