Why Did Her Relatives Label Her a “Witch” and Lynch Her?

52 year old Dulari Bai who had no children was accused of being a “witch” and beaten and killed by four men, all of who were her immediate relatives.

This is a consistent pattern.  In most cases of ‘witch lynching’ the attackers are male relatives or powerful men in the village.  And as studies establish now (see the link below) the reason the women are attacked and killed is so that the men can grab their land and property.
