Maoists rebels using text messages in psychological war

Link: Maoists using SMS messages in psychological war : India World

Maoist rebels are using SMS messages to wage psychological war on Jharkhand police officials.

Sukhdeo Singh, principal secretary to Chief Minister Madhu Koda, received an SMS Wednesday from the mobile number of Chatra district Deputy Commissioner (DC) Puja Singhal that Maoist rebels had killed the district superintendent of police (DSP) along with 25 security personnel in an ambush.

The rebels are exploiting the possibilities of the mobile medium by sending fake and misleading text messages to senior officials to spread panic, fear and disinformation.
