Tripura Police Invokes UAPA Against 102 Social Media Handles

Three days after the Tripura Police charged four Supreme Court lawyers under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), police have invoked the same stringent anti-terrorism law against 102 social media handles, and served notices on US-based Internet companies seeking detailed information on the owners of these accounts.

In a notice served through Twitter’s online Law Enforcement Request system, the officer in-charge of West Agartala police station asked for the blocking of 102 handles, which he said were spreading “objectionable news items/ statements” about the recent clashes and alleged attacks on mosques in the state.
