IANS

New Delhi, March 1, 2020

Panic gripped Shaheen Bagh and its adjoining areas following a rumour that a mob was marching towards the protest site.

But Aam Aadmi Party (AAM) leader Mehmood Ahmed took to social media to deny the rumours and said that the situation was normal. In his Facebook live from Shaheen Bagh, Ahmed said everything was normal and also showed a video.

Stating that areas like Madanpur Khadar and Jaitpur were also normal, Ahmed urged people not to believe in rumours.

Joint CP Devesh Srivastav, who was at Shaheen Bagh, told media persons not to believe canards and warned the people spreading such rumours of legal action.

Section 144 has been imposed in the area to avoid any untoward incident.

The protestors also called off Sunday's proposed march from Shaheen Bagh to Parliament.
