To control the misuses of social media, the state government has taken an important decision during a meeting in Dispur on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal ordered to keep a strict eye on the activities of the users on social media like facebook and WhatsApp.

Sonowal asked the Chief Secretary and Director General of Police to take strict actions against the misuses of social media. He directed police officials to deal firmly with issues of online abuse and attack and urged cyber cell to be more vigilant.

Earlier in last month, popular singer Zubeen Garg was threatened with murder on a Facebook post by a man, who was later arrested. In another post, which went viral, made objectionable statements about a lady MLA of BJP. On Wednesday, police nabbed a man named Rakesh Misra for allegedly posting controversial statements against MLA Pabindra Deka.
