Complaint Registered Against Accused of Witch Craft Allegations
Police have registered a complaint against the 55-year-old man who accused his 46-year-old daughter-in-law of witchcraft at the District Police Office, Dhankuta.
The victim’s 22-year-old son said that his father-in-law, who was living with his family in Sagol, repeatedly called her a witch and threatened to feed her human excrement. She alleges that she received the threat last on June 4, 2023.
After repeatedly accusing her of being a witch, she tried to lodge a complaint at the Chanuwa police station with the help of her neighbors, but the police told her to go to the district police office to settle the case.
The victim’s 22-year-old son said that before going to the police officer, the victim gave a verbal complaint to the Ward Chairperson of Mahalakshmi Municipality-3, Ramchandra Thapa, but the chairperson pressured the victim to settle the matter.
Ward Chairperson, Thapa said that since it was beyond his authority, he told them that ward can only assist in reconciliation. He advised them to go to the police.
SP Krishna Prasad Koirala said that since the District Police Office has received a complaint, the police will investigate and arrest the accused as per the law.
