Urging people not to believe any rumours spread on social media, he said instead of sharing they should rather delete any such fake and false information.

He further said peace committee meetings have been held with all community elders, who have been requested to cooperate and counsel respective community members not to resort to anything untoward.

Another senior police official said, "Special deployment has been done in the sensitive areas in the city. A watch is kept on mischief mongers including their social media accounts." He asked the public to dial 100 in case of any suspicious activity.
