A protest against Thursday's lynching of four persons in suspicion of being child-lifters turned violent in Mango and several other areas of Jamshedpur on Saturday.

"We are interrogating the person," they said adding that a case has been registered against him under IPC and IT Act.

He was one of the 18 persons arrested on Monday in connection with the lynching.
