The simplification of 報(⿰幸𠬝) to 报(⿰扌𠬝) is slightly peculiar. The particularly intriguing area is in the simplification of the left-hand side, with 幸 being simplified into 扌.
There is another similar instance with 執 being simplified to 执. Another 幸 to 扌simplification.
There must be a method to this madness but it isn't immediately evident in the characters themselves.
