The Kerala Police on Monday registered 19 fake campaigns on floods relief.
That have ravaged the state. State Police Chief said that various cyber wings of the police have registered the cases and the probe has already begun.
“The cases have been registered for spreading false campaigns on the relief works.
All such people would be arrested and proceeded against as per the law,” said Behera.
This action comes a day after Chief Minister had said that those engaged in these acts are anti-social elements.
“The propaganda that the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund (CMDRF) has been spent for other purposes is wrong.
“CMDRF is an official system and the money received would be used for distress relief only. It also consists of budget allocation. People shouldn’t fall for this propaganda,” the CM added.
Meanwhile, heavy rainfall and floods have battered Kerala for last one week. The calamity has left 88 people dead and over 2.8 lakh people are sheltered at 1,654 relief camps. Wayanad and Malappuram districts are the worst hit.
