Jaipur, Rajasthan, August 04, 2012.
Four men barged into home of 65-year old tribal woman, Ganga Devi, in Rajasthan’s Udaipur district, and after accusing her of being a “witch” who was causing sickness in the village, the men tied her up to the bed and beat her up. They told her to leave the village or else they would kill her. The police say the neighbours just want to grab her property, and many single women are similarly harassed, branded as witches, and either killed or chased out from the village. Full report here.
