Delhi Police Denies Tension in West, Southeast Delhi

Panic gripped the residents of several parts of west Delhi on Sunday evening following false rumours of violence but the Delhi Police denied any incident and appealed people to remain calm.

Amid reports of fresh violence, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation had shut the entry and exit gates of Tilak Nagar, Nangloi, Surajmal Stadium, Badarpur, Tughlakabad, Uttam Nagar West and Nawada stations. The stations have been opened and normal services have resumed.

“Unsubstantiated reports” of tension in southeast and west districts were circulated on the social media,” Delhi Police said. “It is to iterate that these are all rumours.”

Police are closely watching accounts spreading rumours and taking action against rumour mongers. Delhi Police appeals to everybody to not believe or unfold rumours.

Several AAP, BJP and Congress leaders also took to Twitter urging the people to remain calm as the situation remains peaceful in all parts of the city.
