The tribal villages in India are surrounded by Jungles. Generally they lived far away from the urban culture. We visited those place and witnessed how deplorable life they lead. Witch custom is very prevalent in those tribal area. The basic reason is property and money. It has been observed that often the victim has not a good relation with village headman, Or the leaders marked the victim as enemies. To satisfy their own interests, some ill minded people accused someone as witch. A wrong belief among the tribal community is very much preserved that there is something in the name of witch. Where some of the educated tribal people who belong to urban culture, realize there is no scientific reason behind this custom, nothing but a superstition. But the villagers are not easily ready to accept it.

Sometime the witch doctors show a miracle. These notorious elements play some clever tricks to identify someone as witch. An egg is placed in a glass of water. If egg floats on the water, the person who holds the glass must be a witch. How do they make the egg float on water? Is it a miracle? Not at all. A simple scientific rule. The water in the glass is not plain water, but salted water. Due to salt the density of water increased and helps the egg float on water.
Like a common magician, the witch doctor cleverly gives the glass of salted water to the certain person who will be claimed on witch.
This miracle is disclosed by the rationalists in this video.

Michael Penn    Very few people accused someone to be a witch for their personal game when the pothers go with them driven by their superstitious believes.

This must all be exposed. As you have said "the basic reason is property and money." I have thought this in such cases all through history. With the "witch" dead somebody has something to gain. I've wondered about it in our our Salem witch trials of long ago, but historians go more into the superstition areas of these crimes rather than who might profit. I believe that if you have a "witch burning" somebody has gained something from the dead person.
