After the news broke, people got worried about the order; the Delhi police informed that this is a routine order which is issued every 4 months and it has nothing to do with the prevailing situation in Delhi.

In August 2019, the National Security Act (NSA) was implemented in Jammu and Kashmir following the abrogation of Article 370.
