Couple set on fire suspecting witchcraft

An older couple was singed to death in their rest on doubt of rehearsing black magic while a witch specialist supposedly marked a lady’s face with hot iron and constrained her to eat pig’s excreta to fix her of a disease in Odisha, police said.

In Nimapali town of Jajpur region, reprobates put a match to the place of an older couple, Shaila and Basanti – Balumuch late Sunday night when they were resting in their home. Locals associated the couple with rehearsing black magic after about six individuals of Nimapali kicked the bucket because of various causes in the course of the most recent fourteen days. The couple was murdered in the blast. Tipu Buliuli, brother by marriage of Basanti said they were not on acceptable standing with different townspeople over certain reasons. “The residents used to erroneously blame them for rehearsing black magic,” said Buliuli.

Jajpur’s Superintendent of Police Charan Singh Meena said the conditions under which the couple passed on are being learned. “We have held onto the consumed groups of the couple and sent them to the emergency clinic for after death. We are investigating the charge of the couple being slaughtered over doubt of witchcraft,” he said.
