A J&K police officer also suggested ‘The wire’ news portal to behave with more maturity during this critical period in Kashmir.
During this critical period the portals like @thewire_in should behave with more maturity. They shud first talk with the officers on ground like @listenshahid Sir who have been working selflessly and relentlessly.— Pranav Mahajan (@pranavmahajan) August 23, 2019
