Action has also been taken against 4,563 posts of the 8,275, which were identified as objectionable. These posts were put on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

P Director General of Police O.P. Singh earlier said an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has been set up for the first time in the state to keep an eye on reports emerging from the media, social media and other sources, both before and after the pronouncement of the verdict in the case.

Meanwhile, the police force also undertook prohibitive measures like clamping section 144 to prevent unlawful assembly and undertaking patrolling in sensitive and busy market areas to send a stern message against elements, who attempted to use the Supreme Court’s verdict on Ayodhya case to provoke sentiments of the common people.
