SRINAGAR: Police on Wednesday warned action against those circulating fake tweets attributed to separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, calling for strike on August 5 and 15, police said.

Police in a tweet said “As per family sources of SAS Geelani, the tweet is fake and issued by someone from Pakistan. Police is taking action against those who are circulating it to instigate violence. Case FIR under relevant sections of ULA (P) stands registered in Police station Budgam.”
