Fine for violating Janta Curfew

Multiple Fake news claims: A message is making round in social media stating that on March 22, 2020, those who are found to be roaming around in the national capital without a big reason, those opening shops or those trying to go outside the city, they will be fined by Rs 11,000.

 The text reads, “दिल्ली पुलिस की तरफ से दी गई लोगो के लिए सुचना 22-03-2020 को कोई भी व्यक्ति दिल्ली में बिना किसी बड़ी वजह के घूमता हुआ, दुकान खोलता हुआ, दिल्ली से बाहर जाता हुआ पाया गया तो ऐसे व्यक्तियों पर जुर्माना लगाया जायेगा 11000 रू० का क्योकि ऐसे बाहर घूमते हुए 1 व्यक्ति से लोगो को इन्फेक्शन होने का खतरा रहता है |”

Facts Check Verdict: False / Fake

News Verification: Delhi Police completely dismiss the notice saying that

‘’We have spotted this fake notice being circulated purportedly issued by Delhi Police. We have not issued any such advisory on the imposition of a fine on March 22. Please tell your family and friends that this is false and fake," Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) South Delhi tweeted along with a picture of the fake notice.
