The first accused Akhil and his brother Rahul were arrested on Saturday for allegedly killing Rakhi. The accused also buried her body in the backyard of their house on July 24, police said. The two accused were brought to their house on Monday for collecting evidence. Though the angry mob pelted stones on them, police could manage to protect them from the attack.
