17 March 2015, Tripura

60-year old Kanyapati Debbarma of Duraishamrai ADC village, about 20 km from Kamalpur, was killed by her relatives, who barged into her house and shot her in the head with a rifle at close range as she cooked her evening meal. They accused her of being a witch. Over the last few years about 50 women have been killed in such “witch hunts” in Tripura alone.
