GUWAHATI, June 10 - The State government has decided to constitute a special unit for cyber patrolling to thwart any attempt to spread hatred or disseminate misinformation or rumours through social media platforms.

Chief Secretary TY Das today said the ADGP (Security) Harmeet Singh would lead the team which would keep a tab on such activities and people can lodge complaint if they come across anything �objectionable�. Das said the government had taken the Karbi Anglong lynching incident with utmost seriousness and the perpetrators of the crime would not be spared.

At a press conference held here today, Das informed that the Chief Minister, during a meeting with the top officials of the State earlier in the day, had also taken strong exception to the incident, directing not to leave any stone unturned to bring the culprits to book.

Assam Police Director General Kuladhar Saikia further said, if necessary, more technical persons would be roped in for the cyber patrolling squad to add teeth to the drive against rumour mongers.

So far, 16 accused have been arrested by the police in connection with the murder of the two youths on June 8 in Karbi Anglong.

�We have identified few more accused who are on the run,� Saikia said, adding that two cases had been registered in this connection.

Saikia said the Superintendents of Police of all the districts have been asked to remain alert against such attempts. �Some circles are trying to create imaginary entities to spread superstitious belief in rural areas. We will act against them,� he said.

Replying to a question, the DGP said, �As of now, we have not come across anything which could hint towards a hidden agenda. Nevertheless, we are probing all angles.�
