A 25-year-old man, who was thrashed by a mob for allegedly attempting to rape a 4-year-old girl in east Delhi's Pandav Nagar, died from his injuries at a hospital this morning.

Police said the man - identified as Golu - lured the girl, who had gone to have snacks at a roadside eatery, to a deserted spot near Sanjay Lake on Thursday night.

When the girl did not return home, her mother started looking for her. A local told her that he had seen Golu taking her towards the lake.

When the woman along with some locals reached the spot, they allegedly found the accused forcing himself on the girl.

A mob attacked the accused with stones and sticks. They kept hitting him until he fell unconscious, said a police officer.

Golu, who hailed from Basti in Uttar Pradesh, lived in Shashi Garden area near Pandav Nagar. He was addicted to alcohol and drugs, the police said.
