    RANCHI: Five men were beaten to death by villagers after they allegedly teased women and girls in Jharkhand's Khuti district Saturday, police said.

    "Villagers beat five people to death at Manhu village in Khuti district," police told IANS here. The village is around 70 Km from Ranchi.

    According to police, Bharat, who had a criminal background, was carrying out stone work in the village, which was being opposed by the villagers.

    When Bharat's men misbehaved with some women and girls, the villagers surrounded them and asked them to leave. One of the five killed tried to fire at the villagers, following which the five men were chased and beaten to death by the angry mob

    Mob justice is never good. No matter how good the cause is.

    This sounds like a case of self defence though(by the mob).

    Sorry I would say lynching is better than letting the women be harassed and eventually raped. At least they will remember the pain their whole life......

    Legally incorrect.

    However, the way the infrastructure of governance plies, this type of vigilante action may become routine and that would be most dangerous.

    57 years ago a man molested a woman in our village and threatened to abduct her. 8 hours before he planned abduction he was brutally mudered, hacked into 8 pieces. Must have died of shock and excessive bleeding. Every one said : good riddance. The murderes walked free after one year.

    Last molestation, last murder.
