New Delhi: The Delhi Police has asked the DCPs of all districts to make adequate security arrangements in mixed population areas of the city in view of the newly-released Bollywood film ”The Kashmir Files” to prevent any law and order situation.

The film based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in the 1990s is helmed by Vivek Agnihotri and was released on March 11. The letter issued by the Special Branch of Delhi Police on March 14 cited apprehensions of possible communal violence and tension due to the sensitive nature of the film.

“Keeping in view the sensitivity of the matter, adequate precautionary measures may be taken to maintain law and order situation under control. Adequate police arrangements by local police (including sufficient women police), PCR and traffic are suggested especially in mixed population areas to handle the situation tactfully to avoid any untoward incident,” it stated.

The letter was sent to DCPs of all districts, PCR and traffic units. ”In Karnataka’s Bhatkal, people have started protesting with a demand to screen the film in movie theatres against the limited screening of The Kashmir Files in the local cinemas. In some movie theatres, the audience was heard chanting slogans against the terrorists and enemies of India.

”The communal situation in Delhi is still fragile since the 2020 northeast Delhi riots. Recently the Hijab/Burqa controversy and Haridwar Dharam Sansad’s hate speech against the Muslim community, it cannot be ruled out that even a minor incident may create communal tension between both the communities and affect the law and order situation,” the letter added.
