A mob of 200 villagers took the law into their own hands and lynched 3 people based on rumours that the men had come to kidnap children and sell their organs.
The incident is of 16th April at the Gadchinchale village nearly 120 Kilometres from Palghar district in Maharashtra.
The visuals above show the mobs armed with sticks and stones chasing the police who had come to restore law and order.
Not only that, but the mob also held the three men and beat them with sticks as they bled profusely from their heads.
One from the mob is heard saying, “Hit him” as one of the victims beg to be spared.
