    New Delhi (CNN)In an unusual public raid in India, thousands stormed a jail and dragged out a rape suspect before beating him to death on the streets, authorities said Friday.

    The 35-year-old suspect, who was described as an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh, died from severe injuries before officers could rescue him, said L.L. Doungal, a police official in the remote Nagaland state, where the attack occurred Thursday evening.

    "There were thousands of them. Many of them were students in uniform," Doungal said, referring to the mobs involved in the incident.

    The suspect was accused of raping a local woman last month.

    Since the attack, tensions have grown between the native Nagas and Bangladeshi migrants in the district, police said.

    Thousands of protesters demanding cancellation of trade permits for Bengali-speaking settlers tore into the prison complex Thursday and pulled out the suspect, Doungal said.

    Police initially used teargas and bamboo canes to rescue the man, but it didn't work, he said.

    "There were students in uniform. So, we had to use minimum force," Doungal added.

    Later, police opened fire, but it was too late to save the suspect.

    Protesters had planned a public hanging, but the suspect died from injuries in the attack, according to authorities.

    "We retrieved his body before it could be hung," Doungal said.

    Wait, so this mob held the rapist responsible for the rape that was committed?

    Wow, what a novel idea. The muslims in the area must be outraged.

    Hope they don't blow anything up in an expression of their frustration.

    Funny, I saw this too and was gonna post it if no one did. It dovetails in with my philosophy that sometimes the proverbial retributive "eye for an eye" just doesn't suffice. However, I'd have waited til after the formal conviction.

    no chance at all that an impoverished foreigner was set up and the rapist is still at large
