New Delhi, Aug 14 (TIWN) Four Twitter handles have been suspended after the government told Twitter to remove certain accounts linked to people from outside Jammu and Kashmir which are spreading rumours on the platform, said sources on Monday.

The Union home secretary recommended the closure of few Twitter accounts for "spreading rumours and misinformation to disturb the peace and calm in the Valley."  The list of Twitter accounts includes one allegedly belonging to separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani.  The list of Twitter accounts recommended for suspension include:  1. @kashmir787 -- Voice of Kashmir 2. @Red4Kashmir -- MadihaShakil Khan 3. @arsched -- Arshad Sharif 4. @mscully94 -- Mary Scully 5. @sageelaniii -- Syed Ali Geelani 6. @sadaf2k19 7. @RiazKha61370907 8. RiazKha723  The move comes amid a near-total communication blackout in the Valley.
