Two 'rapists' lynched

Two people were lynched by angry villagers after they raped a woman at Egra in West Bengal’s East Midnapore district, police said on  Sunday.

“Two persons who raped a woman were caught by the locals and thrashed which resulted in their deaths. The bodies have been sent for post-mortem. No arrests have been made so far for the incident which happened on Saturday night,” police said.

The duo, in their early 30s, reportedly abducted the woman from her house late on Saturday night and forced themselves on her at a nearby ground. After the woman raised an alarm, villagers immediately gathered and beat the men to death, a police source said.
