Four men beat to death a 35-year-old man and his friend thinking he had raped an eight-year-old girl. Vakil Chauhan, a carpenter, with the railway powerhouse in Khar, was babysitting the daughter of the watchman.

“The girl got wet and Chauhan changed her clothes and wrapped her in a towel. He made her sleep beside him. The accused thought he had raped her,” said Sub-inspector Shailendra Dewan. The accused started beating Chauhan and Anish Chauhan (31), who tried to save him. The police have arrested the accused.
