Seven people have been lynched in two separate incidents on Thursday, and at least six have escaped with injuries over the last 10 days.
Police officer Prashant Anand said the first incident took place in East Singbhum District, where three men were beaten to death by villagers who accused them of kidnapping children. The mob is believed to have followed their auto on suspicion that they were child-lifters.

Three people were detained for public drunkenness and arson for burning small flags, though one woman was later released. The full medical examiner's report won't be available for three to four weeks, and no more information was available.
The police say rumours had been swirling in the region, as well as the neighbouring Saraikela district, where three cattle traders, Nayeem, Seraj Khan and Sajju, were thrashed to death by a mob.
He denied any incidents of child abduction. The mob chased the auto till Daru village, and while three escaped, they started beating Sheikh Naim, and set their vehicle on fire. There has been a spike in mob violence in the past few months across India, after self-appointed cow protectors gained legitimacy under certain indulgent state governments, to act as vigilantes and deliver mob justice to people they suspected as cattle smugglers. Two vehicles were also damaged. One of the four men died in hospital.
