File Under Scary
Messages forwarded in Pune, India warn parents to be alert to kidnapping attempts from schools. The messages are fake and police confirmed no school has reported any kidnapping.
Senior Inspector Sunil Pawar of the Cyber Crime cell of Pune City Police was quoted as saying
“In the past, these messages have proved to be nothing but rumours. We know that parents are concerned and send messages with the right intention, but these lead to rumours. We urge people not to post, repost or forward anything that has not been verified.”
