Four-day holiday for Eid Al Fitr? Police issues statement
A fake letter on Eid Al Fitr holidays has created a lot of confusion on social media.
The fake letter, made to look like it has been issued by the finance department of the Government of West Bengal in India, says Eid holidays will be observed all across the state for four days, from June 12 to June 15.
The fake document adds that all state government offices, including educational institutions, rural and urban local bodies, development authorities, boards, corporations, and state government undertakings shall remain closed.
Rubbishing the letter, Kolkata Police issued a tweet: "A fake notification is doing the rounds in social media about Eid holidays. It is false. Those who have masterminded this will be strictly dealt with as per law."
