"The video which is going viral on the social platforms claim her to be a child-lifter, which is not true. In fact, she is the grandmother of the child. She went there with her grandson for shopping when people attacked her. Strict action will be taken against those who circulated a video of her on social media calling her a child-lifter" said Superintendent of Police (SP), Niraj Kumar Jadaun on Tuesday.

The police further requested the citizens to dial 100 and call the cops if they find any information on child-lifter instead of taking the law in their hands. Also, verify the news and sources before posting it on social media, it said.

Further investigation is underway.
