Sensation prevails a day after an irate mob lynched two rape and murder accused in Dibrugarh district on Saturday.

The double crime took place on Thursday. The victim’s family and neighbours searched for her the entire day. But of no avail. After allegations before police, the duo refused turn up.

The woman's body was found on Friday morning. The family members suspected the duo in the crimes and an angry mob later searched for them and lynched them at the garden.
