Woman Mistaken for Ghost
“I thought she was a ghost” sounds like a pretty weak defense if you ask us.
A 48-year-old woman in Nansol, India was tragically beaten to death by a man who claimed he thought she was a spectre that was about to attack him. The accused encountered the woman on a dark road and claimed to have acted in “self-defense” by beating the woman with a lathi (a baton). The woman’s family rushed to the scene but by the time they’d arrived it was too late.
