Woman Accused Of Witchcraft Looses Her Tongue

A 70-year-old woman is battling for her life in a hospital after her tongue was cut off by community members who accused her of witchcraft.

The aged woman was said to have been severly beaten with instruments in the village of Rediya in Rohtas District in India’s Bihar State. The attack left her brutally injured.

According to the local media, the woman was sleeping with her granddaughter when she was allegedly attacked by the villagers and held at gunpoint. Reports said that part of her tongue was cut off during the attack and she was rushed to a hospital.

Her granddaughter reportedly told police that three villagers entered their house at night and accused her grandmother of witchcraft. They then attacked her.

The victim’s daughter-in-law added that the woman has been accused of witchcraft in the past by several villagers.

The police investigation continues.

The practice of hunting and torturing “witches” still continues to happen in some rural parts of Bihar and hundreds of women have been killed over recent years, according to reports.
