The residents had earlier blamed 5 women for failing crops, bringing illness to the village and even for the recent death of a child through their witchcraft.

At around midnight on Friday August 7th, the women, aged between 45 and 50 were dragged from their homes and attacked with sticks and iron rods.

'It looks like the village held a grudge against these women for a very long time, holding them responsible for various misfortunes.' Police spokesperson, Arun Kumar Singh told AFP.
