Sixteen people from Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh cleared the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations 2019, as per media reports. The results were declared on August 4. News18 reported that two candidates from North Kashmir’s Kupwara district, Nadia Beig and Aftab Rasool, also cleared the exams. Two days later, several Facebook and Twitter users claimed that Beig’s Twitter account is full of “anti-national activities”. This was based on tweets by a Twitter account ‘@Nadia_Beigh’ which no longer exists. These screenshots below have been widely shared on social media.
