Women in northeastern India took the law into their own hands Thursday, attacking a politician accused of raping a woman in her home. Congressman Bikram Singh Brahma allegedly assaulted a married woman while staying at her family’s home in Santipur, Assam. When villagers learned of the rape accusation, a mob of women surrounded the politician and attacked, stripping him of clothing and slapping him. A local television station captured footage of the assault.

The mob was in the process of lynching the congressman when police arrived on the scene and arrested him, according to the Indian Express.
