Share post:


New Delhi: Refuting false claims being circulated on WhatsApp regarding the recovery of bombs from some schools in the national capital, the Delhi Police on Thursday urged the public to check the veracity and source of information of such messages.

Delhi Police PRO Suman Nalwa in a social media post said, “Fake news in the form of WhatsApp messages regarding recovery of some suspicious objects from some schools is going on.”

“These messages are totally false. Please check the veracity and source of information behind every such message before believing or forwarding it,” Nalwa mentioned.

She also requests everyone to further disseminate information about the false messages to prevent panic among the masses.

Fear descended in almost all schools of Delhi and many in adjoining Noida and Ghaziabad on Wednesday after receipt of an email threatening a terror attack, which was later declared as a “hoax” by the police and the government.

The email prompted disruption of studies, evacuation and massive searches in the schools.
