Bihar police on Sunday arrested a Bajrang Dal worker for spreading wrong information about a Tarapur family.

The man, identified as Gauam Singh Kushwaha from Bihma village under Tarapur police station was spreading rumours that a family from Tarapur had attended Tablighi Jamaat and that a member of the family also tested positive for COVID-19.

The state government has clearly said that no member of the Munger family being on the list of Tablighi Jamaat attendees.

The health department also dismissed social media report on anyone being tested positive from Tarapur.

The arrested person on Saturday posted the wrong information on Facebook about a member of a Muslim family testing positive.
