The principles relating to the acts of a private individual1 apply whether the private persons act individually or in a group as in the case of mob violence or riot. The state is not an insurer of lives and property2. However, it may incur responsibility if its agents acted in connivance with the mob or if it has failed to comply with an obligation of due diligence in preventing the act or punishing the offenders
