Display of firearms: Punjab DGP sets deadline for removing objectionable content from social media

Mohali, November 26: With the Punjab Government banning public display of firearms and songs promoting gun culture, including on social media, Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav on Saturday set the deadline for the people of the state to voluntarily remove objectionable content from social media, failing which action will be taken against them.

In a tweet, Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav appealed people to voluntarily remove any objectionable content from their social media handles in the next 72 hours.

"Appeal to Everyone to voluntarily remove any objectionable content from their Social Media handles in the next 72 hours. CM Punjab has directed that no FIRs for glorifying weapons will be registered for the next 3 days in Punjab to allow people to remove content on their own," the Punjab DGP tweeted.


It comes a day after the Amritsar Rural police booked a 10-year-old child among four persons for glorifying gun culture. The case was registered at the Kathunangal police station on Wednesday. The child's father had posted a photo of his son on the Facebook page in which the child was seen standing with a gun with a bandolier on his shoulder.

Prior to this, Jalandhar's viral ‘kulhad pizza’ couple, Roop Kaur and Sehaj Arora, were booked for brandishing guns in a video on their social media handles. The 'kulhad pizza' couple had posted a video while holding guns on their social media accounts, which went viral.

The couple said they had posed with toy guns that one of their customers had got. They said they had no motive to spread any kind of terror and the sole purpose was entertainment. However, the police said the video was clear violation of the Punjab Government's recent ban. The couple has been booked under Section 188 of the IPC.
