Rumours are the biggest enemy, the Delhi police tweeted.
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 amid panic 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.
"Some unsubstantiated reports of tense situation in SouthEast & West District are being circulated on social media. It is to reiterate that these are all rumours. Don't pay attention to such rumours. Delhi Police is closely monitoring accounts spreading rumours and taking action," the police tweeted.

The stations were later opened.
"The situation on the ground is very normal. It is under control. We received many calls. All the calls were found to be fake. We sent the calls to the SHOs, inspectors. We are dominating the area. We are talking to the people," Deputy Commissioner of Police, Southeast Delhi, RP Meena told NDTV.
"We got calls from Khadar area, Khadda colony, Badarpur, Ekta Vihar, Tughlakabad. All these areas are under control. There's no such incidents. Metro stations are working now," he added.
DCP, Central Delhi, Sanjay Bhatia said," There is no violence in Baljit Nagar and Patel Nagar, don't pay attention to rumours. There is peace in Central Delhi".
AAP MLA Atishi tweeted that reports of mobs in some parts of south Delhi are false.
"Have received WhatsApp messages about mobs in Govindpuri and Kalkaji. These rumours are all false. Situation is peaceful. Police are patrolling the area," she said.
