Monsters who ‘drugged, raped and beheaded’ Irish woman are FREED on bail by Indian court leaving boyfriend outraged

THE men accused of raping, strangling and beheading an Irish woman on holiday have been freed on bail by an Indian court.

Liga Skromane's boyfriend has been left outraged after the two alleged murderers are able to walk free until the trial.

Andrew Jordan is in India to seek justice after Liga's body was found strung up on a tree metres from a tourist beach.

The 42-year-old told the Mirror Online: "Why are they out on bail in the first place?

"If those guys did what they are accused of doing to Liga then they are animals and they should not be allowed to roam the streets.

"If they are guilty then they are a clear danger to other women."

The 33-year-old victim was at a wellness retreat in Kerala when she went missing on March 14, last year.

She had been suffering with PTSD and had been living with Andrew in Ireland.

Her body was found almost 40 days after she disappeared in a mangrove forest near to where she was last seen in a rickshaw.

Cops tracked down two men, known only as Umesh and Udayan, who were charged with her murder and rape. But the pair are on bail.

'IT'S A FARCE'

They were due to appear in court last Thursday for a trial date to be set, but they didn't turn up.

Andrew added: "It's been almost one year since Liga's body was recovered," he said.

"We were promised that Liga's case was being fast-tracked but the hearing just to set a date for the trial has been postponed already. It's ridiculous.

"I try not to let it get to me but the delays just prove that it's not really being taken seriously."

He described the process as a "farce", and said being back in India has been painful.

The last time he was in the country he was searching for his partner, before she was found in a horrific state.

According to local reports, Liga's sister Ilze and her friends identified her by the clothes she was wearing.

She had gone missing after leaving a yoga and wellness retreat, apparently without informing her sister.
