In yet another ghastly incident involving the rape and death of a minor girl, a 30-year old man was lynched to death by the villagers near Nagpur in Maharashtra after he raped and killed a 3-year old girl. The incident occurred in full public and police view.
It was the mob fury that was at its best in the village after it was known that the three-year-old Reshma Kawde, who was missing from her house, has been raped and killed by Deepak Pagadpalliwar under the influence of liquor.
By the time the Reshma`s dead body was recovered from Deepak’s one-room tenement, Deepak was heavily drunk and lying in the village lane. The agitated mob pounced on him brutally until he was killed. People dragged his body along the lane, threw it on the square. Later, some enraged people brought some logs and threw it over the body and set it ablaze before the eyes of the entire village.
