Delhi Police on Monday busted yet another rumor running through the national capital thick and fast. It said a rumor about Muslims approaching with swords to down shutters in Tughlakabad was found to be "fake."

In a tweet, the Delhi Police said: " A call was received that "Sharma market MB Road TKD rumor fail rahi hai ki muslim talwar lekar aa rahe hain shop band karlo." Found to be rumour/fake,  Legal Action is being taken. We again appeal don't believe rumors."

Delhi Police received more than 3,000 distress calls on Sunday from people misled with riot-related rumours in the national capital. Out of these, around one-fifth of these calls on the emergency 100 and 112 numbers came from Shaheen Bagh in South East Delhi and nearby areas in South Delhi. 

Residents were thrown in panic in Delhi on Sunday evening after false rumours of violence surfaced. Delhi Police, however, denied any incident and appealed for calm, days after riots in northeast Delhi claimed at least 42 lives.
