The death of a junior lecturer working in a college in Hyderabad, hours after he posted serious allegations on his Facebook account, has triggered off mass speculation on social media.
K Praveen Kumar, who was working in the MS Junior College at Malakpet, died on Wednesday after reportedly getting hit by a truck near the MGM hospital in Warangal.
In a series of posts in the early hours of September 28, Praveen claimed that ISIS was running a training centre in his college in Hyderabad and that they had beheaded a Hindu lecturer working in the institute.
His posts, in the order in which they were published read:

However, the police say that there is no evidence to back the claims made by Praveen.
