Clearing the air, Delhi Police on its official social media account said "It has come to our attention that some news agencies are misinterpreting and miscommunicating the restrictions, that are to be imposed in New Delhi area in the wake of G20 Summit, using misleading headlines which is causing confusion in the minds of the public and news readers. It is once again reiterated that restrictions are only imposed in a small portion of NDMC area. We request news agencies to publish accurate details in full consonance with our advisories so that there is no room left for any ambiguity."

What our email meant was that Delhi educational institutions, banks, financial institutions, and most offices will be closed and that movement will be restricted in the New Delhi district. The email may have caused a misunderstanding and is open to misinterpretation. We are immediately sending a clarification to the same email base."
