According to him, the deceased were workers of a telecom company who came to check the mobile phone signals in the area. 

The SSP further said that it was a backward area where a rumor was doing rounds that children were being abducted here. When the poor telecom workers reached the place, people thinking them as kidnappers pounced on them, he added.

Citizens alleged that the slain persons were kidnappers whom they lynched. 

Police reached the venue and took the bodies in their custody. They shifted the bodies to the Civil Hospital.
