A spate of pamphlets urging folks of a selected group in opposition to taking anti-Covid vaccine photographs and spreading rumours about their components surfaced within the metropolis right here on Sunday, prompting police to lodge an FIR in opposition to unknown folks.
The pamphlets, present in posh Rajendra Nagar locality in Bareilly, appealed to a selected group to keep away from taking the vaccines, SP (Metropolis) Ravindra Singh mentioned.
The leaflets had been instantly seized and an FIR was lodged within the Premnagar police station in opposition to unknown individuals beneath varied sections of the IPC for mischief mongering and making an attempt to whip up communal passions, he mentioned.
The SP mentioned the police vigil has been stepped up throughout town, notably in delicate areas, to take care of peace and nab the culprits.
