Three held in Hyderabad for rumours about missing people

Three persons were arrested here on Thursday for posting fake messages on social media about missing persons, triggering rumours of “kidnapping mafia” active in the state.

The Cyber Crimes Police Station of the Detective Department arrested Venkat Gurijala, Kranthi Kiran Naidu and Balraju, who, in the name of “Telangana Yuva Synyam”, created the rumour.

Police on Wednesday had registered a suo motu case about viral posts on social media, to the effect that the number of missing complaints in Hyderabad has been increasing day by day and “nearly 82 people went missing in Telangana within just 24 hours on Saturday (8th June)”.

Police said these posts were creating alarm in the public and it is likely to induce the general public to commit an offence against public peace.
