Akku Yadav

-Was a 32 year old alleged rapist and at least three murders in August 13, 2004, he was lynched by a mod of around 200 women. He was stabbed over seventy times, and chili powder and stones were thrown in his face. It took them about 15 minutes to hack to death the man they say raped them with impunity for more than decades. One of his alleged victims hacked off his penis with a vegetable knife. The incident was even more exposed since they didn't murder him in a dark alley but instead in the shinny white marble floor of Nagpur district court.

-The victims believe that Yadav had been bribing the police, for protection, since every time a victim would come forward they would refuse to pursue charges, or he would get out on bail. The victims claimed that when they went to police they would laugh and later give Yadav the names of the people who reported it. He allegedly would order his henchmen to drag even girls as young as 12 to a nearby building to be gang-raped, which they claim was to be able to control men.
