Mob Justice On Chennai Streets, Two Men Lynched Within 24 Hours For Alleged Child Theft

Lynching on suspicion of child theft on Thursday claimed a second life in Tamil Nadu in 24 hours — a mob beating to death a man with psychiatric problems and stringing up the body from a newly-constructed bridge near Pulicat Lake, around 50km north of Chennai.

Thursday’s peremptory dispensation of vigilante justice was the latest instance of a phenomenon now so alarmingly routine in the state that it has resulted in five murders in less than a month.

It took place a day after a group of people in Athimur, Tiruvannamalai district, around 170km southwest of Chennai, beat to death a 65-year-old woman from Chennai on Wednesday, on the assumption that she was trying to steal a child from the village.Click Here: Crystal Palace Shop
