Following this tweet, Moitra made another tweet urging the Police Commissioner of Delhi Police to remove the stationed officers, as they seem to "note her movements". She embedded a notice with the tweet which urged the concerned authorities to withdraw the officers because she is "an ordinary citizen of this country, did neither ask nor want any such protection".
