Jamui: A man was beaten to death in Thadi village near Chandramani after he was sentenced to death for raping a woman. The verdict was delivered by Maoists, police believe.
Dhalo Yadav, 40 year old, was found dead on Thursday morning and his brother Kanchan Yadav was badly injured. Kanchan was immediately taken to Chakai Hospital where he was given first aid and referred to Devghar hospital.
Police officer Hareram Singh told Bhaskar News that the victim had been accused of raping a woman in his village around ten days ago. However, the woman did not want to lodge any complaint with the police, he added.
Police suspect that the Maoists must have taken the case in their hands and delivered the verdict in their own brutal style. The two brothers were missing since Wednesday. Police suspect that Dhalo was killed late on Wednesday.
