A mob of up to 1,000 people has beaten to death two suspects following the rape and murder of a five-year-old girl in India, police say.

The men were reportedly dragged from the police station where they were being held in the remote northeast.

 Apur Bitin, an officer in the Arunachal Pradesh town of Tezu, said more than 15 members of the force were injured by the angry group, which heavily outnumbered police.

Prior to the lynching, local media had named the suspected perpetrators and relayed details of the crime.

They reported that the girl’s decapitated body had been found in a tea garden nearly a week after she went missing on 12 February. Read more
