Ayodhya verdict: social networks will be banned, says UP DGP OP Singh

NEW DELHI: The Uttar Pradesh Police General Director (DGP), OP Singh, has said that extensive arrangements have been made for the Supreme Court to register the case on Saturday morning.

Speaking to TOI, OP Singh said that among the various measures taken by the UP Police, control over social networks and patrolling on foot throughout the state were the main ones.

There will be a ban on social media throughout Uttar Pradesh to control rumors and prevent rioters from blowing the atmosphere, Singh said.

This measure is taken to control conflicts.
