Nabarangpur: A woman was allegedly murdered by two brothers over suspicion of sorcery at Gujumapadar village under Papadahandi block of Nabarangpur district on Tuesday late night.
Reportedly, the deceased identified as Tulabati Santa had been ousted from the village on suspicion of practising sorcery.
As the families of Dhanu Santa and Radha Santa were complaining of ill health for the last few days, they held Tulabati responsible for it.
Last night they tricked her out of her house and attacked her with a plough. Her daughter-in-law attempted to save Tulabati, but she was also injured in an axe attack.
It was after family members lodged a complaint at Maidalpur, police arrived at the spot, seized the body and launched a manhunt to nab the accused.
