Woman killed by nephew for allegedly practising witchcraft

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, Feb 1 - A 50-year-old woman was killed by her nephew with a hit on her head with a piece of wood on Thursday at Birgaon village under Sidli Police Station, creating sensation in the area.

The accused Bhunda Tudo (38), killed his paternal aunt Naha Tudo, when she was having a meal at one of her relative�s residence at Birgaon at around 5 pm.

The victim was a resident of Banduguri, which is 1 km away from Birgaon. Soon after the incident, the villagers caught hold of Bhunda and handed him over to police of Sidli PS, which is over 6 km from the spot.

Following a report filed by the victim�s family at Sidli Police Station on Thursday night, the police registered a case (No.02/2019) under Section 302 (murder) of IPC against Bhunda and the court sent him to judicial custody after he was produced before it today.

The villagers said that Bhunda�s wife often fell ill and Bhunda suspected it to be an effect of the alleged black magic practised by his aunt on his wife. Thus he attacked her branding her a �witch�, villagers said quoting Bhunda.

�Primarily It is being treated as a murder case and investigation is on to establish other angles�, a junior police officer said.
