Video of Cop Directing Students to Vacate Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar Goes Viral, Police Call it Fake
The development comes in the backdrop of widespread protests in the Capital against the new citizenship law.
New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday registered a case after a video of a cop asking students of Mukherjee Nagar to leave the Capital till January 2 in view of the “sensitive” law and order situation went viral.
In the video, the officer can be heard saying that owners of PGs, restaurants and coaching centres have been asked to leave the city. “Section 144 has been imposed so don’t gather or you’ll be booked for public nuisance,” he adds.
The students respond in the affirmative after his message.
However, responding to the video, DCP Northwest Delhi called it fake.
