Lynch Mobb In India: Breaks Into Jail, Kidnaps Alleged Rapist, Beat Him To Death In The Street

Lynch mob dragged alleged rapist four miles and beat him to death

This is the shocking moment a violent mob broke into an Indian prison and kidnapped an alleged rapist before stripping him naked and beating him to death in front of a jeering crowd.

Taking justice into their own hands, the gang today overpowered security at the Central Jail in the city of Dimapur and grabbed the man, who allegedly raped a female student multiple times last month.

According to local media reports, he died while being dragged four miles through the streets as people beat and pelted him with stones.

The horrific attack on the man, who had not been convicted of rape, comes amid rising anger over the high rate of sexual violence in the country.

'A mass protest rally against the rape was held at Dimapur after students and angry people forced into the district jail and managed to pull out the accused,' the Press Trust of India news agency said.

It has been reported the crowd tore down two gates before dragging him to the town's clock tower.
It's said they also set fire to homes and shops in an area where the suspect ran his business. 

Several people were injured when police used batons and opened fire, while officers were hurt when the mob pelted them with stones in Nagaland state in northeast India. The police later removed the man's body. 

'The situation is very tense,' town police superintendent Meren Jamir told the Hindustan Times. 'We are trying our very best to restore order.'
