11 more nabbed in Bhimajuli

Sonitpur police have arrested eleven more villagers in Bhimajuli after they beheaded a loal woman branding as witch three days back.
“They were arrested on the basis of the confessional statement of the main accused who was arrested hours after the gory incident,” police told Assam Times.
But the wife of the main accused who played no less role in the crime has yet to be arrested. “We have yet to pick up her since she is pregnant,” said a police officer who is tracing the case.
A section of the villagers in Sonitpur district bordering Arunachal Pradesh dragged a local woman out of her house to be beheaded alleging that she was a witch.
