Banners calling for boycott of Kashmiris and asking people from the Valley to leave Uttar Pradesh have come up in the district in the wake of incidents of stonepelting on security forces in Kashmir.
Taking note of it, police have registered an FIR against Amit Jani, the chief of Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena, a little-known outfit which put up the banners.
Jani said they have put up these banners and hoardings along the Partapur bypass outside the colleges where Kashmiri students study.
The outfit said it is only the first step and it will launch a "halla bol" campaign from April 30 to "banish" the Kashmiris who do not leave the state on their own.
SHO of the Partapur police station Dinesh Sharma said the banners have been taken down.
Sub-Inspector Vipin Kumar said an FIR has been registered under IPC sections related to "promoting or attempting to promote disharmony on the grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, caste or community".
