Seraikela: An awareness drive was launched in all nine blocks of Seraikela-Kharsawan on Friday to inform villagers about the rumours regarding child lifters resulting in several killings in different parts of Kolhan and Jharkhand in general.
Meetings were held at various nooks and corners of the district to tell villagers about the reality behind the rumours. Villagers were asked not to kill or punish anyone on the suspicion of child lifting. They were asked not to take the law in their hand under any pretext whatsoever.
They were asked to immediately inform the district administration in case they come across such rumours.
District administration officials said that stringent action would be taken against those found taking law in their hands.
