However, Madhur Verma, the Delhi Police's Public Relations Officer, refuted such reports.

"Schools will remain open tomorrow(Monday). There are no instructions from #DelhiPolice to close them. Social media rumors should not be believed (sic)," Verma posted on Twitter.

Several cases of torching of DTC buses and train coaches were reported from different parts of the city on Friday, following the Dera chief's rape conviction by a special CBI court in Haryana's Panchkula.

Verma also dismissed a "traffic advisory" purportedly issued by the police.

"Fake traffic advisory circulated, no such advisory issued. No road closures, metro remains as per schedule," he said.

The 50-year-old Dera chief, who was convicted in a 15-year-old rape case, has been lodged in a jail in Sunaria on the outskirts of Rohtak, where a CBI judge will be flown tomorrow to pronounce his sentence.
