Two men set on fire for raping a minor girl in Jharkhand, India.
After a minor was allegedly raped by two men, angry locals burned the accused alive in Jharkhand’s Gumla district, India. The accused were first brutally beaten up by the victim’s family, after which they sprinkled kerosene to burn them alive. One person died while the other has been seriously injured and is undergoing treatment at a hospital.
The incident took place when the minor, along with her family, was returning from a wedding ceremony in a neighboring village. Since there were no buses available, her father asked the two accused, who were on a bike, to drop her home, because they all belonged to the same village.
However, on the way back, the two accused raped the minor before dropping her home. When she disclosed the events to her family, they stormed out to teach the two a lesson. The family members beat the two accused and then sprinkled kerosene on them and set them on fire.
One of the accused died while the other has been admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi.
