Women Lynch Accused Rapist in India

A group of angry women lynched a man accused of rape as he was being escorted into a courthouse in the city of Nagpur in the central Indian State of Maharashtra.

Well, if they got the right guy, I can’t say I see any problem with this. Maybe it’ll cause the next guy to think twice before doing the same.

    The chap seems to be the right guy, he also seems to have had accomplices in the police. There is a mention of 47 rape complaints against him and not even one case was registered. And not just the women, the entire neighbourhood is convinced that they have the right guy.

  2. Well, then I think they ought to torch the Police Station while they’re at it. Though police corruption isn’t rare from what I saw with you guys, that’s absolutely ridiculous.

    Is it getting much official attention from the government? Or is it just a springboard for partisan bollocks?

We have floods, drought, inflation, all-nation trucker’s strike, the Indian team went out with a whimper from the Holland tri-series, the BCCI elections are around the corner, the Olympics is going on, so no, it isn’t getting a lot of attention from the government. Or from anyone else. There were a few articles about the danger of institutional irresponsiveness and vigilantism, but other than that, it is just one of the many things that happen here.
