The pictures have emerged after they broke into a prison, kidnapped the man, stripped him naked and mercilessly beat him to death in front of a frenzied crowd.

Taking justice into their own hands, the angry crowd was a terrifying portrayal of the country’s increasingly aggressive stance against sexual violence. 

The man allegedly raped a student from a local women’s college multiple times in February and he was arrested a day later

‘A mass protest rally against the rape was held at Dimapur this morning after which students and angry people forced into the district jail and managed to pull out the accused,’ the Press Trust of India news agency said. It has been reported the crowd tore down two gates before dragging him to the town’s clock tower. It’s said they also set fire to homes and shops in an area where the suspect ran his business.

Several people were injured when police used batons and opened fire, while officers were hurt when the mob pelted them with stones in Nagaland state in northeast India. The police later removed the man’s body.
