In a shocking incident, a man was stoned to death in Telangana after he allegedly raped a seven-year-old girl. According to the police, the incident took place in  Nizamabad's Donkeshwar village on Saturday.

According to police, a group of villagers tied  Sayanna to a tree and hit him with stones and sticks. The man died on the way to hospital. Sayanna, a labourer, was drunk when he called the daughter of his neighbour to his house, offering her chocolates. He later raped her.

Upon seeing the girl crying and bleeding, villages alerted her parents, who were working in an agriculture field. The parents took their daughter to a hospital in a neighbouring village.

Meanwhile, angry over the incident, the villagers caught hold of Sayanna and tied him to a tree. They threw stones at him and also hit him with sticks. A police officer, quoting eye witnesses, said when he fell unconscious some people took him to hospital but he died on the way. Police rushed to the village and launched an investigation.
