“We will detect those who are spreading rumours. Those responsible for the exodus from Bangalore will not go scot free,” union Home Secretary RK Singh said.
Wild rumours have been spreading that people from the northeast region would be attacked after Eid on August 20 to avenge the recent ethnic violence in Assam.
The rumours have caused over 5,000 students from northeast fleeing to Guwahati from Bangalore by special trains.
