Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday urged his Karnataka counterpart H D Kumaraswamy to ensure a thorough inquiry and stern action against the culprits involved in the alleged attack on a Sikh man in Kalaburagi over "fake WhatsApp news".

Taking serious note of the incident, Capt Singh in a tweet asked Kumaraswamy to direct police officials to book the suspects under the most stringent provisions of the Indian Penal Code and launch a detailed probe into the incident.

"Just heard about mob attack on a Sikh in Gulbarga on suspicion of being child lifter following fake Whatsapp news. Request you Shri @hd_kumaraswamy ji to ensure stringent action against culprits, and full protection for Sikh community and their religious rights in your state (sic)," Capt Singh said.

Avtar Singh was reportedly thrashed by a mob on suspicion of being a child lifter following fake "WhatsApp forwards" about people from certain states coming to Karnataka and abducting children, and also harvesting their organs.
