Jammu: Taking cognizance of frequent complaints being received related to frequent international calls from unknown numbers, Jammu and Kashmir Police in an advisory have appealed to the people not to attend such calls as they are spreading rumours on cancellation of G-20 meeting scheduled to begin in Kashmir next week.

As cyber crime and cyber frauds have swelled manifold, simultaneously, likewise international calls from unknown numbers from different callers and service providers are spreading rumours about cancellation of G-20 meeting to be attended by foreign delegates at Kashmir, they said.

“The rumor of cancellation of G-20 meeting in Jammu and Kashmir is being spread through calls made from foreign numbers,” police sources said.

They said that in an advisory, people have been asked not to answer phone calls coming from abroad.

Actually, sources added that since the last few days people are receiving calls from numbers with +44 code and those who are attending them, the caller is trying to create confusion among people by spreading rumours about the cancellation of the G-20 meeting to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Several such complaints have been received at various police stations,” they said, adding that it seems to be a handiwork of some anti-national forces making calls from suspicious phone numbers to mislead people and spread anti-national messages.

“People need to be alert on this and if anybody has such a complaint it can be lodged with the cyber police station or to the nearby police station ,” said a police official.

Notably, G-20 meeting is commencing in Kashmir next week and in view of that tight security arrangements are made in the Valley.
