Facebook Inc’s WhatsApp messenger service has responded to a call from India’s technology ministry to curb the spread of false information on its platform, saying such a task required a partnership between the pair as well as with society in general.

On Sunday, five more people were lynched in the western state of Maharashtra on suspicion of being child abductors.
