Delhi Police’s fight against fake news has a Harry Potter connect

While the police is associated with all things crime and law & order, their social media avatar often shows remarkable wit and ingenuity. While Mumbai Police’s Twitter posts have been garnering a huge following, Delhi Police is not far behind. A tweet by Delhi Police on April Fools day regarding fake news is winning over twitteratis.

The tweet by DCP South Delhi shows Harry Potter in his ‘invisibility cloak’ from a scene from ‘Harry Potter: The Chamber Of Secrets’ and warns people: “We’re vigilant & everywhere! Strict legal action will be taken against any attempt to spread rumours on social media in the guise of #AprilFoolsDay.”

Social media is rife with fake news even as the country is currently under lockdown amid the alarming spread of COVID-19. Delhi Police as well as all vigilance departments have been monitoring all social media platforms to check the spread of false rumours.

This effort by Delhi Police has been appreciated. Many other police departments, too, have been taking to Twitter in innovative ways to warn people about the spread of fake news and the strict action awaiting violators.
Following are a few tweets by the Mumbai Police and Pune Police:
