Imphal, April 27: A 41-year old pedophile has been lynched by irate public of Andro in Imphal East on Saturday at Andro Kangjeibung in Imphal East district for allegedly raping a mentally deranged minor on March 27 last.

The victim has been identified as Aheibam Pishak (41) s/o (L) A Hem Singh of Andro Khunyai Leikai in Imphal East district while the victim has been identified as Chingakham Nirmala (11) d/o Ch Nillamukta of Andro mamang Leikai.

According to locals, on the evening of March 27 the locals of Andro had organized a Thabal Chongba to mark the end of the residents’ religious ceremony – Laiharaoba. The accused had taken the victim on the pretext of having her eatables wherein she had been raped twice in the kitchen of the local temple premises.The culprit gave her Rs 10 and sent her back with a warning not to disclose the incident to anyone.

Barely a month later in mid April, the mentally disturbed minor had mentioned the incident to her peer which led to the spread of the news to the locality. Both the families had tried to solve the scandalous talk of the locality. But thing has come to such a passé that the matter reached the ears of a particular militant group.

The culprit was absconding after the militant group had asked both the parties to appear before them for trial. Upon the insistence of the outfit, the culprit surrendered to the militant group on April 25 and confessed his crime.

After giving him a punishment, the outfit later handed over him to the public leading to the lynching of the culprit by angry mob of the locality on Saturday. The corpse has not been retrieved by the police till the time of filing this story.

If he committed these crimes, then justice has been served. We need swift justice like that here in the US. I have a few quick question. So is a lynching a hanging, or are they completely different? Would this guy be hanged slowly so the public take turns beating him ?
