The goon was dragged out from the custody of the two constables and was showered blows with stones, sticks, swords and knives 73 times. The lynching reportedly occurred when Yadav spotted a woman he had raped and called her a prostitute, enraging the mob.

Acquitting all the accused, the District and Sessions Court said in its verdict that the police have no clinching evidence to prove guilt of the accused. Ironically, the court, where exactly the lynching of Akku Yadav had occurred, acquitted the accused.
