The Jammu and Kashmir police on Monday booked nearly two dozen people for raising anti-India slogans at Kishtwar.

Two of the people have been arrested, sources said, identifying them as Saqib Shah resident of Puhie and Muddasir of Baghwan area.

Giving details, sources said that trouble erupted in the town soon after the Eid prayers at Chowghan Maidan when some local Muslim youth tried to take out a procession. Some of the processionists raised anti-India and pro-ISISI slogans.

As provocative slogans had led to communal tension in the town leading to wide spread violence and arson on Eid last year, the police immediately swung into action and registered a case. While two people have been arrested, more are likely as police are looking for others raising provocative slogans during Eid procession.
