Two women in Jharkhand were tied to a tree for an accusation of stealing vegetables

In still another instance of mob violence, two ladies were mercilessly beaten and tonsured on accusations of stealing vegetables in a village in Jharkhand.

The women on Sunday had happened to Thakurgaon village from nearby cities to purchase vegetables from the weekly shop. While turning, their auto split down and they decided to visit at their relatives’ residence.

The subsequent morning when they continued on their trail home, they happened victim to a hoax that they had stolen vegetables from the plots. The villagers circled them, brought them to Soba village, tied them to a tree and flogged them. Not satisfied with beating up the two women, the villagers then tonsured both.

The two women would have been mobbed if the policemen had not arrived in time and saved them. A trial was registered on Tuesday based on the comments of the victim.
