Jamshedpur: Eight people were lynched in Jharkhand in the last nine days on the suspicion that they were part of child stealing gangs.

PTI reported that the latest incident of lynching took place on Thursday under Rajnagar police station area of Seraikela-Kharswan district. Angry over the incident, locals torched two police vehicles.

Superintendent of Police (City) Prasant Anand said three people were lynched by villagers who suspected them of being child lifters in Nagadih on Thursday night.

Two of the victims were identified as Uttam Kumar Verma, a resident of Jugsalai, and Ganesh Kumar Gupta of Bagbera, the SP said, adding that the identity of another victim could not be established.

An old woman was also seriously injured in the incident and has been admitted to a hospital.

When a police team reached the spot, agitated villagers started pelting stones at them, injuring some policemen. Two vehicles were also damaged.

“A police picket has been posted to maintain law and order,” Anand said.

Earlier on Thursday, two people were beaten to death in Sosomoli village, while another was lynched in Shobhapur village by the locals, DIG (Kolhan region) Prabhat Kumar told PTI.
