MAYURBHANJ (ODISHA): Two mentally-retarded brothers were brutally thrashed and tied to a wooden pole for allegedly kidnapping a child here in Baripada.    

The incident took place on Friday.

The bizarre mob, which even beat up the young boys’ father, did so while hundreds of bystanders watched them carry on with the atrocity.

Reportedly, the two boys were walking along with a child, when they stumbled upon villagers in Chhak. Upon understanding that they had lost their way, they began enquiring about the route to get home. Suspecting foul play, the villagers tied up the two boys and thrashed them mercilessly, and even resorted to injuring their father, who rushed there to save them.
