A 48-year-old man was lynched by villagers in Bihar’s Rohtas district on Saturday after he bludgeoned his wife to death with an iron rod.

The incident occurred at Vishrampur village under Mufassil police station of the district. Mufassil police station SHO Jagniwas Singh said the deceased have been identified as Durgawati Devi,40, and her husband Gopal Nutt.

Police are investigating the double murder and ascertaining what led to the fight between the couple. Nutt allegedly hit his wife on the head, inflicting fatal injuries to her.

Devi, who was brought to Sadar hospital by villagers, succumbed to her injuries. This angered the villagers who, in turn, beat up her husband and killed him on the spot, the SHO said. The post-mortem of both the bodies have been conducted, the SHO said and added that an unnamed FIR has been lodged with Mufassil police station.
