Police arrived on the scene and reviewed CCTV footage of what happened, before telling the woman that she would be fined 1,000 kroner (£119.37) in the post.

Violating the regulation results in a fine of 1,000 kroner ($156).

According to a Reuters report, thousands of woman joined the protest and marched through the capital Copenhagen wearing veils after the law, which many feel violates freedom of religion and expression, was passed.

The ban, which took effect on August 1, prohibits full-face Islamic veils in public places.

The episode took place in the center of Hørsholm center where the woman with niqab came up to top with another woman by an escalator in the center.

"She chose the latter", Borchersen said.

Police are going through surveillance video to determine if the other woman deliberately ripped off the niqab.

Around 13-hundred people - mostly women - sported masks, niqabs and full-body burqas, as they marched, . despite the various penalties including an 120 USA dollar fine for first-time offenders or up to six months in jail for repeated offences.

Several women wearing niqabs - which fully cover the body but leave the eye area open - told CNN the ban would make it hard for them to leave their homes, whether to take their children to school, shop for groceries or just move around their communities. The country's "Burqa Ban" also outlaws other accessories covering the face like balaclavas, masks and false beards.

The full-face veil is a highly charged issue across Europe.

Supporters of the law argue instead that the ban enables better integration of Muslim immigrants into Danish society.

"All women should be free to dress as they please and to wear clothing that expresses their identity or beliefs".
