Srinagar: Hoardings 'threatening and warning youth against indulging in immoral activities' were removed from a locality in the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, the police said.

The hoardings put up in a residential area near Gole Market in Karan Nagar, around three kilometer from the city centre, had warned the youth against indulging in immoral and obsence activities.

“The hoardings threatening youth of serious consequences if they indulged in immoral activities were removed," a police officer said in Srinagar.

But, the residents of the area defended the "warnings", saying there was nothing wrong or illegal about it.

“All these hoardings said was that the youth found indulging in immoral activities in the area would be handed over to the police or deterrent action taken against them before being handed over to their parents," added a resident of the area, Imtiyaz Ahmad.

He said the residents were witnessing some young couples coming in vehicles and indulging in immoral activities while parking their cars in the deserted lanes and by-lanes of the area.

“Please do not try to hype the issue. We simply said those indulging in such acts would be handed over to the police or upbraided before being handed over to their parents," said another resident of the area.

“We have not taken the law into our hands nor inflicted physical or mental injury to anyone. Kindly don't try to equate this incident with the beating of the youth in a Mangalore pub. The two incidents have no connection at all," the resident added.
