The Jammu and Kashmir Police registered a case on Tuesday in connection with "misleading pictures" showing the two militants killed in Ganderbal encounter in Central Kashmir being dragged by a vehicle. 

"Police has taken cognizance of some people having uploaded pictures on social networking sites with the concocted information that the bodies of the militants had been dragged after the encounter in Ganderbal," a police spokesperson said.

The pictures, depicting the slain militants with their legs tied by ropes to a jeep and being dragged by the vehicle, were posted on social networking sites soon after the encounter ended in Ganderbal district.

"Such posts are misleading and no such act has been committed with the bodies of the killed militants. The photographs being circulated are not from any part of Kashmir. "A case has been registered against the people spreading this false information on social networking sites, particularly on Facebook," the police spokesperson added.
