In a horrific incident, three women including a minor were allegedly tied, beaten up overnight, and made to consume human waste after being accused of possessing witch-like powers in Bihar’s Purnea district.
Two people have been arrested in the case which took place in Mohini Adivasi Tola under Kasba police limits. According to one of the victims, when her cousin brother’s newly wedded wife fell ill, she and the two others visited the couple to check on them.
However, the neighbours, she said, pointed fingers at the three of the victims and called them witches who used their magic powers against the sick woman. The three victims were then allegedly held captive and tied up in the house by around 10-12 people.
According to the victims, they were beaten up the entire night. Later in the morning, all of the three were allegedly made to drink a mix of human waste and urine.
