In yet another case of mob justice, an angry mob brutally thrashed a man and his mother on suspicion of killing the wife of the man in Shewpur Tea Estate at Rongpuria in upper Assam’s Tinsukia district.
Police officials said while the man identified as Ajay Tanti sustained serious injuries, his mother Jamuna Tanti died on the way to hospital.
The angry mob attacked Ajoy along with his mother Jamuna following the recovery of the body of his 23-year-old wife from a septic tank in their house. Ajoy’s wife Radha Tanti Garh has been missing since Wednesday.
“After the recovery of the body, an angry mob attacked Radha’s husband Ajay and his mother Jamuna Tanti injuring them seriously. Both of them were rushed to Tinsukia Civil Hospital, where Jamuna was declared brought dead,” said a police official.
“We have sent the dead body of Radha for post-mortem. We suspected that Radha was murdered and her body was dumped at the septic tank. We are investigating the matter,” said a police official of Tinsukia police station.
Police said those who are involved in the mob attacked will not be spared. “No one can take the law into their own hands. We will take strict action against them,” the official said.
