An Indian lady blamed for being a witch met her alarming end after her own family “stripped her bare and blinded her with consuming ashes previously pounding the life out of her.
The stunning episode occurred in the town of Kadera, Rajasthan, northern India.
The loathsome assault on the lady named as 40-year-old Kanya Devi who was blamed for being engaged with ungodly act was supposedly done by two of her relatives and a neighbour, who trusted they were attempting to free her of any any magic spirit.
As per reports, a several members from the family have been arrested for the horrendous murder of the lady and they are blamed for compelling her to eat defecation and fiercely beating her before staying consuming coals in her eyes,leading to her blindness.Kanya who managed a few wounds died the next day.
The issue became exposed when Mahadev Regar, a relative of the deceased and another neighbourhood extremist, went to her memorial service and he was outraged after learning how she died and immediately they called the corps
Ms Devi’s 15-year-old son is said to have witnessed the attack, but was ordered not to report it to the police by a village elder.The village elders had allegedly ‘absolved’ the perpetrators by forcing them to take a ‘holy dip’ in a nearby river and be on cow-feeding duty, but had threatened outraged members of Ms Devi’s family with social boycott if they reported the matter to police.
Affirming the episode, a police representative stated: “On August 8, Mahadev lodged a complaint but we were waiting for a complaint by a close relative.
“After her 23-year-old little girl Maya Devi complaint, we lodged a FIR on Sunday.”
The police spokesperson said they have arrested those involved on suspicion of murder, causing the disappearance of evidence, two charges of witch hunting and causing the unnatural death of a woman
Sharing more light on the incident, Police Superintendent Rajendra Singh, said: “She was badly tortured. The accused have admitted to forcing her to eat faeces, lashing and burning her.
“Five of the six accused, booked for murder and under relevant sections of the Rajasthan Prevention of Witch Hunting Act, have been arrested.”
As per him, the accused have been named by officers and they include Kanya’s niece Pinky, her nephews Mahaveer and neighbour Sonia.
