City police are trying to trace a person who wrote about ‘abduction and murder’ of a four-year-old boy on Facebook, leading to consternation among the social media users.
Police suspect it to be a fake post as no such complaint has been received in the city, an officer of cyber crime cell said today.
“We are trying to trace the person,” said the official.
A person who went by the Facebook profile name of Zain Shaikh had posted a message two days ago about abduction and murder of his ‘four years old nephew’. The post went viral and thousands of people shared it.
But as police did not receive any complaint about any such crime, it is suspected to be a hoax.
