Ranchi: Jharkhand government is prepping up to introduce a bill preventing mob lynching.

The draft of the ‘Prevention of Lynching’ bill has been prepared. It is likely to be introduced in the winter session of the state legislative Assembly.

Speaking to ANI, Jharkhand Minority Affairs Minister Hafizul Hasan said, “This is for all. Making of the law is underway… The law is to stop such incidents like mob lynching in future and give a sense of fear to those who commit such crimes. This fear was very less in previous) government.
