56-Year-Old Woman & Her Daughter Hacked To Death In India For Practising Witchcraft


A 56-year-old Indian woman, Malti Devi and her daughter were beaten and hacked to death in eastern India for allegedly practising witchcraft, police said on Saturday.

The killings took place in Jharkhand state’s West Singhbhum district on Thursday, senior police officer Anand Mohan Singh said.

The woman was attacked by her neighbour, also a distant relative, who accused her of witchcraft and blamed her for deaths in his family, Singh said.

“The woman recently performed some rituals at her place after which the suspect’s wife fell ill.

He, along with two others brutally beat the women with wooden sticks and later hacked them using a sharp edged weapon,” Singh said.

The police have started investigations after the victim’s husband, who was not home at the time of the incident, reported the crime to the local police station. The three suspects are still on the run.
