  • Share


The viral Advisory in the name of Delhi police is completely fake. Delhi Police has not issued any notice like imposing a penalty of Rs 11,000 on those who do not comply with the Janata curfew on March 22.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for the self-imposed Janta curfew on March 22 from 7 am to 9 pm amid coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, on social media, a notice in the name of Delhi Police is becoming viral claiming that Delhi Police is going to impose a fine of Rs 11,000 on 22 March to people who will unnecessarily roam outside their house.

A Facebook user name Pooja Chan shared the notice in her Facebook account. The viral message reads,

"Information for people given by Delhi Police. On 22-03-2020, if any person found roaming in Delhi without any major reason, opening shop, going out of Delhi then such people will be fined Rs 11000 because even one person can spread the infection to people. On 22-03-2020, all Indians should cooperate together.

Thank you.

Delhi Police. "
