Four people were booked for sedition after raising pro-Pakistan slogans in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, media reports said on Saturday.

Two incidents of pro-Pakistan sloganeering were reported in Nowshera over the past couple of days, the videos of which have reportedly gone viral on social media.

The area, along with Sunderbani and Kalakote towns of the border district, are on an indefinite strike since February 16 over the demand of district status and creation of separate additional deputy commissioners’ posts.

“Four identified persons have been booked for raising objectionable (pro-Pakistan) slogans in Nowshera during the last two days and action under law has been started against them,” Yougal Manhas, senior superintendent of police (SSP), Rajouri, said.
