Recently, a message claiming that the lockdown is going to be lifted partially or fully, from tomorrow and therefore as responsible citizens, we have to follow certain traffic rules and also remain cautious in protecting ourselves and our belongings is doing rounds on social media.
The message further alerts that, as many out there, did not have many earnings all these days and therefore, there might be a sudden spurt in incidents due to job loss or effect on businesses.
Here’s the viral claim:
It is been claimed that the message has been issued by local police of Kolkata and is circulating in different cities with the ‘Caution’ from Police.
A media portal contacted Mr. Murlidhar Sharma, IPS, Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, Kolkata Police.
