The Centre has asked the states and UTs to take measures to prevent incidents of mob lynching fueled by rumours of child lifting circulating on social media. The Home Ministry has urged the states and UTs to keep a watch for early detection of such rumours and initiate effective measures for countering them.

The States and UTs have also been asked to direct District Administrations to identify vulnerable areas and conduct community outreach programmes for creating awareness and building confidence. It was also stressed that complaints of child abduction and kidnapping should be properly investigated to instill confidence among the affected persons.
