Women kill rape suspect in court

8-13-2004 India:
A man standing trial for rape was killed by a group of women and children in court in the city of Nagpur in central India on Friday, reports say.

Initial reports said about 14 women and several children forced their way into the courtroom and knifed the accused, Appu Yadav, to death.

The attackers then escaped from the scene of the crime. Police, who have launched an investigation, admit that they were caught unawares.

Second case
However, the BBC's Zubair Ahmed in Bombay says they also admitted they had to throw a security cordon around the defendant last week when he was jeered by angry women as he arrived in court. Yadav was facing 24 counts of molestation and rape. ..more.. by BBC News

Rapist-murderer lynched by women
8-14-2004 India:
Even as Dhananjoy Chatterjee awaited the walk to the gallows, another rapist and murderer met a painful end in a courtroom. Appu Yadav a k a Bharat Kalicharan Yadav was lynched and castrated by 50 women when he was produced in court.

Yadav and three other criminals were taken to court at 2.20 pm for remand extension by three police constables. The women, who were waiting for Yadav with some youths, started shouting and attacked him with stones and sticks. The youths had hatti knives. The ruckus spiralled and the enraged women castrated Yadav.

A police source said that the constables fled the scene. “The police should have taken proper care and made adequate arrangements. It was a mistake to have three constables escort four criminals,” said a senior police officer.

Yadav, who was arrested by the police last Friday, was produced in the First Class judicial magistrate’s court on Sunday. A group of people had staged demonstrations then. Appu had 40 cases of murder, rape, attempted murder against him and was also arrested earlier under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.

The other three accused were injured and have been admitted to a local hospital. Nagpur Joint Commissioner Rajendra Sonawane said an inquiry would be done by a DCP rank police officer and the report would be submitted to D Sivanandhan, police commissioner, in 10 days. ..more.. by Yogesh Naik
