Mob thrashes L&T engineer over child-lifting fears
Hazaribag/Dhanbad: An L&T engineer was bashed up on child-lifting suspicion at Kargalo village in Jharkhand’s Hazaribag district on Tuesday. Police have arrested three of the four accused.
Ahmad Siddique was visiting the village with his team to conduct a government survey in the tribal-dominated villages without electricity. An FIR has been filed in the case.
In a separate incident in Maithon, a mob attacked a man, suspecting him to be a child-lifter, on Tuesday. Police sources said, Somen, a deed writer from Dhanbad, was on his way home after offering puja at a temple there with his friends.
“Somen and his friends had stopped at a roadside eatery when he entered a village close to the hotel while taking a call. The locals suspected him to be a child lifter and held him captive,” police sources said.
