Mob tried to attack the Mosque after fake news

An unverified news item published in a Hindi daily — about one of the accused in the Udaipur killing — allegedly brought an armed mob of 200-300 people charging down on a Rajasthan village Wednesday before police stepped in and controlled the situation. Fifty people have been detained for the incident, which left a constable grievously injured. Twenty-three of these have been arrested. The news report in question, published in Dainik Bhaskar, pertained to Ghaus Mohammed, one of the suspects in the brutal killing of tailor Kanhaiya Lal Teli. According to a front-page item published Wednesday, Ghaus was a resident of Bhim, a village in Rajsamand district. There were also rumours that the accused was a cousin of the maulana (cleric) of the Jama Masjid at Bhim, something the paper also claimed in another article Thursday. Speaking to ThePrint, Rajsamand Superintendent of Police (SP) Sudheer Chaudhary said neither report was true. Even so, after the 29 June report was published, a mob from neighbouring villages started gathering outside Bhim, with the intention of burning the mosque down and attacking the maulvi, claimed Chaudhary. The mob was stopped outside the village, he added, but a police constable was injured in the violence.
