On Friday afternoon, when he was being produced in the civil court no. 7, a mob appeared out of nowhere andbroke open the front door of the court room and attacked Akku with knives and stones.

He was killed on the spot.

Joint Police Commissioner Rajendra Sonawane has ordered an inquiry into the security lapse.
