The Maharashtra Police, meanwhile, detained 23 people in connection with the lynching on Monday.

Police officer M. Ramkumar said five men were bludgeoned to death on Sunday in a remote, mountainous village in Maharashtra state.

For the past few days, the police claimed, SMS and WhatsApp messages have been circulating with rumours of child abductors travelling around the district.

Last week, man suspected to be child-lifter was beaten to death by mob in Chhattisgarh. Raju was from Karnataka and the others were residents of Mangalwedha in Solapur district.

The men were all members of a nomadic community who pass through villages in order to beg, local newspaper The Hindu reported.

The number of people on the street in Rainpada was exceptionally high, as they had gathered for the weekly bazaar.

They said that people from this community often pass though villages begging and they had been doing that when they were attacked.

"Rumour-mongering aided by social media is creating panic among the people".

Director General of Police Datta Padsalgikar on Monday issued a stern warning that anybody found indulging indulging in such aggressive behaviour could face murder/attempt to charges and appealed to all people not to become victims of unverified messages/rumours on social media, but report them to police for investigations and action. The group, however, was saved by two locals who pushed all five into a house and a small mill stocking textile raw material and kept the surging mob back until a 130-strong police contingent rescued them close to midnight.

In Maharashtra, two men were beaten to death and seven others were injured after a mob of villagers attacked them on suspicion of being robbers in Chandgaon village in Vaijapur taluka on June 8.

At 8 pm on Sunday, another police naik (constable) Dharmendra Sonawane told The Wire that the police is yet to register an FIR in the case.

The police reached the spot after they were informed by the traffic cop about the incident. Their bodies were taken to the Pimpalner civil hospital. The police station is 35km from where the incident took place. All have been booked under Section 302 (murder) and the sections pertaining to rioting of the IPC. "Most faces are identifiable in the video recording".
