They implore the public to exercise vigilance and abstain from spreading unconfirmed messages, particularly those pertaining to security matters.

This call to action stems from recent episodes of misinformation circulating in Assam, specifically concerning alleged incidents of child abduction, which have the potential to sow panic or incite adverse reactions.

The Assam Police underscores the critical importance of verifying information before sharing it, especially given the imperative to prevent the recurrence of events such as mob violence or hate crimes.

Via a social media post, the Assam Police expressed concern over the resurgence of rumors regarding child abductors, which have sparked incidents of lynching in various areas. They earnestly urge citizens not to propagate or forward unverified rumors regarding child kidnappings. Additionally, citizens are urged to actively report any suspicious activities or messages to the authorities for swift intervention.
