Three sadhus were rescued in Dima Hasao district of Assam on Thursday after they were mobbed by at least 300 people, who suspected they were child abductors, the police said on Friday. The incident comes days after five people were lynched in four separate incidents in Assam and neighbouring Tripura in June following rumours and fake news spread through social media networks, primarily messages and videos on WhatsApp, according to the police.

A video footage of the sadhus — two from Uttar Pradesh and the third from Gujarat — being rescued by security personnel did the rounds on social media Friday. The three had reportedly attended Ambubachi Mela at Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati last month and were on way to Tripura in a Uttar Pradesh-registered car. With floods in the region leaving roads damaged in many areas, they could not progress and were returning to Guwahati when they stopped at Mahur, in Dima Hasao district, about 300 km southeast of Guwahati.
