The Delhi police rescued six African nationals from Kakrola in Dwarka after they were targeted for being involved in child kidnapping and cannibalism.

According to reports, four Tanzanian and two Nigerian nationals were rescued after police received calls from Dwarka on Thursday that around 200 people had gathered outside the building where some of the Africans live. Then another call was received from the same area about a boy being kidnapped by the Africans.

After police reached the spot, they found a mob gathered outside the house of Africans. The mob had gathered after rumours started doing rounds about the Africans being cannibals.

The police dispersed the crowd and rescued Africans from there.
