Men stripped naked and paraded in front of angry mob after being accused of raping 17-year-old girl

The pair and two other men were accused of raping the teenager after one of them befriended her on social media.

Two suspected rapists were stripped naked by an angry mob and frogmarched through a town as the crowd beat them.

The pair and two other men were accused of raping a 17-year-old girl after one of them befriended her on social media.

The alleged rapists were led through the Indian town town of Yingkiong by the mob who had toed their hands behind their backs.

They were taken to a police station and handed over to officers as many filmed the pair on their smartphones.

Police deputy inspector general John Neihlaia said: “It seems the public did such a thing before handing the two to the police.”

He said the teenage victim had befriended on the men on social media but claimed she had been raped by him and three of his friends.

He added: “The girl was dropped back at her home at 2am. Her parents lodged a complaint with the police in the morning.

“Meanwhile, the victim’s relatives and neighbours caught two of the accused and handed them over to the police.”

Police have launched a hunt for the other two men. All four are said to be in their early 20s.

It is the latest incident of its type in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in which mobs angered by alleged sexual crimes have taken the law into their own hands.

Last month, nearly 1,000 people stormed a police station in Tezu, grabbed two men accused of the rape and murder of a five-year-old girl, and killed them in the town’s marketplace.

One day later, a mob of nearly 900 people ransacked the police station at Yingkiong in protest that a man accused of raping a five-year-old girl had been moved to another district of the state.
