Hyderabad: Newly appointed city police commissioner CV Anand issued a warning to people who engage in social media abuse on Tuesday, urging non-resident Indians (NRIs) to refrain from publishing nasty and insulting statements on social media platforms. In a conference with other police, he stated that in addition to issuing lookout warnings, charges would be filed against them.
Their passports would be taken, and their visas would be revoked, according to the Hyderabad police commissioner.
