The Punjab Police Saturday gave three days to people to remove content that promotes gun culture from their social media handles. The move came a day after it faced flak for booking a 11-year-old over a photograph that his father had shared in 2015 in which the minor was holding a toy gun. The minor’s name was later removed from the FIR.
