Kupwara: Police Monday arrested a man for presenting himself as police officer on his WhatsApp Display Picture (DP) in North Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
Quoting a police official, Kashmir News Trust reported that the arrested is working as an insurance agent in a private company and has been arrested by police in Dragmulla Kupwara.
The official said that the man identified as Showkat Ahmed Peer, a resident of Dragmulla, had uploaded his photograph donning police uniform on his personal WhatsApp.
“He was using this photograph as DP to ‘befool’ and ‘threat’ others and thus was maligning the image of police,” he said, adding that Police took cognizance of the matter and registered a case under relevant sections against him. KNT
