According to reports provided, in the past one week, 15 suspects have lost their lives in the hands of the mob.
All victims are male. Four of the victims were burnt to death while others were either stoned to death beaten or attacked using crude weapons.
The mob who answer distressed calls attack without questioning. Increase in cases of crime and lack of faith in the police and judicial system to properly process suspected criminals contribute to mob killings according to information provided by security experts.
