An alleged rapist was beaten up and paraded naked by an irate mob in Mon district of Nagaland on Wednesday before he was rescued by the police.

According to reports, the accused Rahul Sen, a salesman in a watch shop, had sexually assaulted the victim, a 12-year-old Naga girl on several occasions in a village about 360 km northeast of the capital Kohima.

The matter came to light recently when the victim, a class IV student, complained of ill health and was taken to a hospital. A medical check up confirmed rape.

Once the news spread, local residents nabbed the accused and thrashed him. He was paraded naked and tied to an advertisement board from where he was rescued by the police and taken into custody.

Police officials were not available for comments.

In March 2015, a mob broke into the Dimapur central jail and lynched a rape accused. In this case too, the accused was a non-Naga. Authorities had to impose curfew in Dimapur and police arrested more than 40 people for the lynching.
