Three women first tie his hands behind his back and drag him with a long rope.
An Indian man has been killed by women after carrying out a rape of an 8-year-old girl. The incident supposedly took place in an Indian village called Duma.
A viral video has also emerged of the attack, which depicts the women beating the man, identified as Mithun Hasan.
It reveals how three women first tie his hands behind his back and drag him with a long rope into what appears as an open field. Surrounded by women and children, they watch as various individuals approach the man to beat him.
The footage shows how they use large sticks to attack him. Mithun Hasan stays on the ground as the beating continues. Towards the end of the video, a policeman approaches the group and speaks to them about the shocking incident.
Afterwards, police take the man into custody. However, reports claim he later died, nearby the village of Duma in Jharkhand.
This attack took place after Mithun Hasan had allegedly carried out the rape of an 8-year-old girl. It supposedly happened after she attended a wedding, when she and her friends walked to a nearby lake, in order to bathe.
Reports claim that the Indian man had first abducted the child and then raped her. After the attack, he reportedly killed her and left her body next to the river bank.
Roshan Gudiya, Deputy Superintendent, said: “We have taken the body in our custody, but so far it is not confirmed that the girl [was] raped or not.” However, disgusted with the rape of an 8-year-old girl, the Indian women decided to attack Mithun Hasan.
The footage of this attack has clocked over 23,000 views after it became uploaded onto LiveLeak.
It comes after figures show that rape cases continues to rise in recent years. In 2015, startling statistics showed that 34,000 cases became registered in India.
However, many fear the actual number could be even higher, as many decide against filing a complaint.
The reasons behind this vary from fear of the police or becoming shunned in communities.
But this viral video has shown how Indian villages are now attempting to tackle the issue of rape themselves.
