Gwalior police have registered a case against a Kashmiri student over his comment on social media supporting Pakistan after the Champions Trophy final.  A case under IPC section 153-A (disturbing communal harmony) and the provisions of Information Technology Act was registered against Seh Mudassar, who hails from Kashmir, after his comment on a Facebook post created tension in Mahalgaon area of the city, additional superintendent of police Abhishek Tiwari told PTI.

A boy from the area — where Mudassar, a post-graduate student of Jiwaji University, has been living for the last two years — wrote a post on Facebook congratulating Pakistan for its victory while expressing disappointment over India’s performance in the June 18 match.  Reacting to the post, Mudassar made a pro-Pakistan comment.  It created tension in the area, and the boy’s parents scolded their son over the issue. Mudassar then left for Kashmir, the ASP said.
