He added that State Disaster Management (SDM) teams have been appointed to provide relief to those whose houses have been burned down in riots.

'Do not be influenced by rumours'

Speaking about the alleged communal violence that has rocked Delhi since February 26, Gopal Rai said that people should not be influenced by rumours and fake news. He advised that people should only express their views after understanding the truth and proper investigation. 

"While on one end, there is increasing violence, on the other end there are incidents of Hindus and Muslims protecting each other from the riots. Therefore, it is wise to know the truth before sharing or tweeting about anything. Rumours can become the cause for violence many times," the AAP leader said.

Gopal Rai further appealed to the administration to conduct an investigation into the case of two dead bodies found near Ganga Vihar.
