In the district of Anantnag rumors were spread by miscreants through social network sites like whatsapp and Facebook.

A senior official said that no child died after being administered to polio drops in south Kashmir or anywhere else in the Kashmir valley.

Everywhere rumors are spread that children are dying after being administered to polio drops. He also requested the parents not to pay attention on the news blaming polio drops as the cause of children’s death.

All these are rumors, which do not have any link or connection to the reality. It has no basis at all.

Despite of the warning given by officials, many worried parents rushed to the hospitals in Srinagar and other nearby towns.

The parents, who got their children vaccinated on Sunday, went to hospitals and this led to the traffic jam in the valley of Jammu and Kashmir. Authorities have requested radio and television stations to air the official denial to calm the situation.
