Massive clashes had broken out in Delhi last week (File)
There has been no violence in southeast or west Delhi, the police said on Sunday, requesting people not to believe in rumours circulating on social media.
The appeal came after panic spread in certain localities on Sunday evening over reports of fresh clashes following this week's violence over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that has left 46 people dead and hundreds injured in the national capital.
The Delhi Metro rail Corporation had temporarily shut some stations after rumours of clashes and violence spread on social media. The stations were however reopened later.
