Police rubbish claims of ‘Jihadi scare’ in Pune

Pune: The city police today refuted the claim of a right-wing outfit that due to “rise in Jihadi fanaticism” Hindus in Pune were scared and were migrating.

The organisation, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, claimed in a post on its website that “Pune was on the verge of becoming Kashmir and Kairana (the UP town where a BJP leader had claimed exodus of Hindus)”.

But the police dismissed the claim.

Joint Commissioner of Police Sunil Ramanand said no incidents of this kind had happened.

“We will investigate the post with the help of cyber cell and will question the organisation,” he said, adding that Pune was one of the most peaceful cities in India.
