“The mob forcibly stormed in to the jail, dragged the prisoner out of it, dressed out Khan to be lynched on the street. Where was the administration?” said Das who is on a visit to the commercial city in Nagaland.
“The authority must take the responsibility for the barbaric incident where rape accused was lynched by mob on the street. Who was guarding the jail where goons can drag out a prisoner to be killed openly?” said Drishti Baruah in Dimapur who works with a private office.
He said the government should institute a high level probe to put the goons behind the bar.
