Jamshedpur: A 50-year-old man, who had allegedly raped a woman last week, was lynched by villagers after he along with an accomplice made an abortive attempt to rape her daughter in Seraikela-Kharswan district of Jharkhand, the police said on Wednesday.

Radha Mohan Munda and another man allegedly tried to drag a 35-year-old woman to a desolate place at Ichagarh to rape her yesterday, Officer-in-charge of Ichagarh police station Amarjeet Prasad said.

The woman was, however, rescued by villagers and a panchayat meeting was convened last evening to discuss the issue and punish the two.
It was revealed at that meeting that Munda had allegedly raped the woman`s 55-year-old mother last Wednesday though no police complaint was made, Prasad said.

Munda and his accomplice arrived at the meeting with a gun, which was later found to be fake, and started threatening the woman with dire consequences, if any action was taken against him.
At this, the enraged mob severely assaulted him and handed him over to the police.

Prasad said Munda succumbed to his injuries on the way to M G M Hospital here. Munda`s accomplice managed to escape.
