An another case torturing after accused as witch in January 2015

Pacho saren of remote village Baliguma, P.S.- Joypur, Dist Bankura was accused as a witch and then he was brutally  tortured  by the villagers. It was an incident of last week of December 2014. Pacho went to nearest hospital and he was admitted at that time. On 4th January 2015, when he released by the doctor and tried to enter in his village some villagers resist him. Pacho and his family were driven out. At last, local administration, our organization “Science and Rationalists’ Association” involved in this case. Joypur Police station has taken a bold step by arresting a villager. On 12 th January we met the villagers and convinced them. On 18th evening we arranged an anti superstations program and disclosed some miracles of witch doctors, god man. Pacho’s neighbors promised us regarding the harassment of Pacho.

I agree with Daniel W. The thing here is that old superstitions die hard. You have to just keep teaching the people.
