Rapist dragged out of jail, hacked to death


Dimapur: A rape accused was beaten to death by a mob after being pulled out of a jail at Dimapur in Nagaland.

A mass protest was held at Dimapur on Thursday morning after which an angry mob forced into the district jail and pulled out the accused who had raped the victim several times on February 23 and was arrested the next day.

Police resorted to blank firing and also fired tear gas shells but failed to bring the situation under control.

An emergency cabinet meeting was held at the official residence of the Chief Minister to bring the law and order situation of the city under control.
