Srinagar: As the high-speed internet was restored on late Friday night after 18 months in Jammu and Kashmir, police say it may pose challenges for the government forces to deal with cyber security, KNS reported.
Senior Superintendent of Police for Cyber Crime Wing in Kashmir, Tahir Ashraf, while welcoming the restoration of 4G internet in J&K said that it will also pose challenges for them.
He said that the restoration of high-speed internet in J&K will come up with its own set of challenges. However, he said, they are ready to deal with any challenge.
“With high-speed internet, online traffic will increase and will pose more challenges for cyber security. But we are ready to deal with any challenge as we have been dealing during 2G internet speed,” he said.
He also appealed all the social media users in J&K to upload and share content online only after “proper verification”.
“People must desist from sharing content online without verifying its authenticity. And if anybody is found sharing any content without authenticity, he will be dealt with strictly under law,” he said.
Tahir said that after the restoration of high-speed internet across J&K, people should not ‘misuse’ it.
Pertinently, high-speed internet was restored in J&K on Friday late evening after 18 months after the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019. (KNS)
