A village headwoman in Chattisgarh was arrested on Monday with her daughter and son-in-law for allegedly stoning to death a woman who was branded a witch.

The incident took place at Narkela village in Jashpur district, about 450 km from Raipur.

"The village sarpanch, Rimni Bai, and her daughter and son-in-law were arrested following strong evidence that they stoned to death a middle-aged tribal woman Budhiaro Bai after branding her a witch," said a police official probing the case.
