Assam: 10 people sentenced to life imprisonment in the witch hunt case

On Tuesday, additional districts in Tiran and Vizini, a session judge, voted.

In 2001, twelve defendants reportedly killed three on suspicion of practicing crafts identified as Ganguly Basumtari, Malalam Basumtari, and Paniram Basumtari.

However, of the 12 accusations, two died first.

Reportedly, when the case was registered with the Vizini police station, the Vizini court was then under the Bongaigaon district, and the case was transferred here in 2018.

Since then, the hearing and witness process has been underway, and today the court has issued a final verdict.

However, in order to provide more effective measures to prevent the occurrence of such incidents in the future, the Assam government introduced the Assam Witch Hunting (Prohibition, Prevention, Protection) Act in 2015 and 2015. .. It has been in effect since the consent of President Ram Nath Kovind.
