These shocking images show a woman who was brutally beaten outside of her own home. She was dragged out of her house in India and left unconscious in a violent attack by a gang of 25 who believed she was guilty of killing her husband.
Housewife Usha Devi, 45, was attacked in her village in Samastipur, Bihar, northern India, after they suspected her of killing her spouse. Usha was at home with her children, on October 31, when a group of men entered her house and dragged her outside.

Almost 100 people stood by and watched, but nobody stepped in to help. One bystander even filmed the horrific incident, though Metro.co.uk have decided not to include the extremely disturbing footage.
The village suspected her of killing her husband Ashok Paswan, 50, following an instance of domestic violence. Usha was taken to Sadar Hospital, in Samastipur, where she was admitted and treated for her injuries.
