New Delhi: It is not only public outrage over the gang rape incident but inmates of Tihar Jail too could not hold their anger against Mukesh the main accused in the case and thrashed him inside his ward.

According to sources, Mukesh was not only beaten up by the inmates but was forced to consume human excreta and urine. However, the Tihar jail officials have denied the reports.
The inmates allegedly attacked the accused when he was roaming in his ward after regular morning activity. He was allegedly attacked by blade because of which he received several cuts on his face and body.  

Mukesh, 26, is in judicial custody after being arrested in connection with the gang rape and torture of a woman on board the bus he was driving. He is currently lodged in Jail number 4 of the Tihar Jail where inmates allegedly thrashed him. He was later taken for treatment where doctors termed the injuries minor and discharged him after giving first aid.

Earlier, Mukesh was "identified" by the 23-year-old victim's male friend, an engineer in a software company, during a Test Identification Parade (TIP) at Tihar Jail.  Mukesh was driving the bus when the 23-year-old woman was gang raped, police said.

So far, five people have been arrested in the Sunday’s gang rape case that has lead to massive outrage across the country.
