In an ultimate act of revenge, an Indian woman killed her rapist by setting him on fire, the Times of India reports. Authorities say the 25-year-old woman was raped at knifepoint on April 30, and her 38-year-old attacker was released on bail in May. She asked him to her house on Thursday to negotiate a settlement when the woman and her brothers poured kerosene on the man and set him on fire. He died on Friday, and the woman and her family are now facing murder charges. Most commenters on the article support the woman’s actions, saying “Fitting punishment. This should be made into a law…burn all rapists alive” and “Well done brave lady!!” while criticizing India’s “slow” judicial system.
