A mob of villagers branded a village woman as witch, got her head tonsured and paraded her in the Afzalpur village. The woman’s tormentors included her relatives.

The victim, Kalawati Devi was a faith healer for the last several years and the villagers blamed the death of a 3 year old boy on her. The police have arrested some of the men involved.
