A Hyderabad-based advocate has filed a complaint against a reporter of a Telugu news channel, accusing her of writing an “anti-national’’ post on Facebook on the situation in J&K that allegedly incited violence and hatred.

The reporter, Rehana Begum of NTV, had in her post described the “pain” of Kashmiris “in shackles” following the lockdown in J&K. She later deleted the post.

The complainant, Karunasagar Kashimshetty, alleged that besides writing an “anti-national” post, Rehana “also pedalled fake news about the situation in Kashmir”.

Deputed to cover the lockdown, Rehana on August 5 posted a photo of herself standing behind a barbed-wire fence at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk and wrote: “So much pain. Kashmir is in shackles. This is a historic occasion. Kashmiri voices have been locked behind barbed wire. Protests have been prohibited. I am witness to this time.”

Kashimshetty said her post was “wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause a riot, to cause feelings of enmity between citizens and against Government of India…likely to cause alarm”.

He gave a complaint to Saidabad police.
