Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday told top police officers of the country not to arrest or harass anyone on basis of allegation of radicalisation unless solid proof is available.
Singh also said that genuine NGOs are free to carry out development works but warned that those organisations which allegedly indulge in anti-national activities will not be spared. This was conveyed by Singh at the concluding day of the three-day conference of DGPs and IGPs here.
The Home Minister told the top police brass categorically that no innocent should be arrested or harassed merely on the allegation of radicalisation and one should be nabbed only after getting adequate proof against the accused, official sources said.
Home Minister, however, directed the DGPs and IGPs to remain alert against attempt to radicalise youths through online and strengthen cyber security apparatus of states.
