Neighbourhood News Desk/ Simran Nijhawan: The police have arrested around 30 people in connection with the lynching of a man in Karnataka’s Bidar district on the suspicion that he was a child-lifter. A mob killed the man and injured three of his friends in Aurad taluka’s Murki village.

Those arrested included the administrator of a WhatsApp group that spread rumours about a child-lifting gang, and a person who shot pictures of the attack and circulated it. Lynching incidents on similar suspicions, often based on social media rumours, have been reported from several states over the last few weeks.
