The Traffic Inspector has even penned the lyrics for the song. Speaking in regard to the circumstances of the song, he said that it is extremely disturbing that fake WhatsApp messages about child kidnappers and deadly dacoits have resulted in the brutal lynching of several innocent people. He stated that by educating the public regarding the situation through his songs, he can put an end to the menace in the society.

So far, at least 5 cases of innocent people being assaulted due to these hoax messages have been reported. The police have already moved beggars to shelter homes and asked transgenders to leave the city until the menace ends. They also warned against spreading such messages and that action would be taken against those involved.
