article imageWoman burns her 'rapist' to death

By Sami Zaatari     Apr 3, 2013 in Crime
An Indian lady took justice into her own hands by setting her rapist alight, and burning him to death according to local police.
The police described the incident as an "act of revenge" by the Indian widow, who was allegedly raped in her own home by the burned suspect.
The burned suspect in question, Bhola Thakur, entered the woman's home as she slept, and then proceeded to force himself upon her.
According to the police, Thakur was heavily intoxicated at the time and slept at the woman's house. The woman considered burning herself at first out of shame, and poured the kerosene on her own clothes, before changing her mind and placing her clothes on the suspect, and setting it alight according to the police report.
Police are holding the lady in custody, and will have her medically examined to see if she was indeed raped.
Indian tour operators have recently reported that many tourists have been scared away from visiting the country due to incidents of gang rapes.
