Toronto Police spokesman Mark Pugash said Monday an extensive investigation was conducted and police concluded it did not happen.
An incident involving a 11-year-old girl who claimed that her hijab was cut by an individual outdoors "did not happen", according to the Toronto police, reports CTV news on Monday.
The sixth-grader, her mother and her younger brother held a news conference at her school on Friday at which Khawlah Noman said she had been walking to school with her younger brother when a man came up behind her, pulled off her jacket hood and started cutting the bottom of her hijab. She claimed she screamed and ran away, but the man returned less than 10 minutes later and tried to cut it once again.
Toronto police have confirmed that an alleged scissors attack on a schoolgirl's hijab, which sparked widespread outrage including a public condemnation by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was a hoax.
