Tripura IG Saurabh Tripathi

New Delhi: Tripura Inspector General (IG) Law and Order In-Charge Saurabh Tripathi on Thursday said that fake photos and videos are being widely circulated on social media depicting the violence at Panisagar in Tripura, adding that these were being spread by some "anti-national" and "disturbing" elements.

Action will be taken against those spreading rumours, the police said.

"Some vested interests are trying to disturb the peaceful communal situation of Tripura. Tripura Police requests every citizen of Tripura to help it in maintaining law and order and peace in Tripura," he said.

The videos and photos that are being spread have no connection with Tuesday's incident, the police said. The violence happened during a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) rally in protest against a series of attacks on Hindus during Durga Puja in Bangladesh.

"Anti-national and mischievous elements on Twitter and Facebook are spreading fake news and rumours. The videos and photos that are being spread have no connection with the Panisagar incident. No fire incident took place at any mosque," Tripura Inspector General of Police Police Saurabh Tripathi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

On Wednesday, the police said that some anti-social elements participated in a VHP rally and instigated the violence.

"Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists took out a rally to protest against the recent violence in Bangladesh. A group of people threw stones and damaged a door of a mosque in the Chamtilla area during the rally. Security forces rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control," district superintendent of police Bhanupada Chakraborty was quoted saying by news agency PTI.

Heavy security has been deployed in the North Tripura district following tension in Panisagar and Dharmanagar area, about 155 km from state capital Agartala.

No fresh incident has been reported from Tripura in the past 24 hours after the police banned the assembly of four or more people in parts of the North Tripura district
