Jammu: In a bid to stop the use of internet
cafes by militants, the Jammu and Kashmir government has begun
the registration of all cyber-cafes in the state.

"Cyber cafe owners and network service providers, who
provide computer services, including internet access to
general public either on payment or free of charge for any
purpose, including recreation or amusement, shall register
their cyber-cafes and network service," District Development
Commissioner (DDC), Udhampur, PK Pole said on Monday.

These steps have been taken as anti-national elements,
militants and OGWs are using new technology for communication
and spread of hatred and terror, he added.

In September last year, an e-mail claim on High Court
blast in New Delhi in which 15 people were killed, was sent by
Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HUJI) militants from a cyber cafe in
Kishtwar district.

Although there is a decline in militancy, terrorists are
using Information Technology through cyber-cafes for the
spread of terror messages and for communication with various
groups.
