Earlier today, a reddit thread that incorrectly identified one of the Boston Marathon bomb suspects to be Sunil Tripathi (http://www.reddit.com/r/boston/comments/1cn9ga/is_missing_student_sunil_tripathi_marathon_bomber/), a missing Indian-American student in US was doing the rounds of social media, especially Twitter. The rumours continued after WFSB News reporter Kevin Michael said police scanners mentioned the two Boston Marathon bomb suspects as Sunil Tripathi and Mike Mulugeta.
DNA had posted a disclaimer along with the report that said: There is no official statement by the FBI on the identities of the suspects and these could just be rumours being circulated on Twitter.
It is now being said that the identities of the suspects match with those of two Chechnyan brothers. Read their story here:
