Be a rebel: Delhi Police makes Baaghi reference in fight against fake news and rumor

New Delhi/IBNS: In a bid to avoid spreading of fake news and rumours across the national capital at a time when the city witnessed violence over the new citizenship law,  the Delhi Police on Tuesday started a new campaign which had a direct reference to actor Tiger Shroff's movie Baaghi.

The word Baaghi in Urdu means 'rebel'.

With the campaign poster, which featured an image of Tiger, the  deputy commissioner of police of New Delhi district tweeted: "It's the BAAGHI season.
We are #Baaghi against #false & #fake. Are you?Get ready to be a Baaghi against #FakeNews.Be a rebel against all networks of false information. Be vigilant against rumour mongers. Let's unite to fight fake."

Delhi witnessed protests and violence over the new citizenship law passed by the Centre last year in recent times.

The violence also led to over 40 deaths in the city.
