Hurhura is a remote village in District Bankura of West Bengal. Only 50 people live in this tribal village. As usual there is no electricity and primary school till this days. 2nd week of August 2014, a 65 year old woman was mentally and physically tortured after being accused as witch by the villagers.
The members of our organisation "Bharatiya Bigyan O Yuktibadi Samiti" (Science and Rationalists' Association of India) met the villagers and tried to convince the villagers. On 17th August, we organised an anti-superstition camp in the play ground of the village.
