A 50-year-old Dalit woman was beaten to death by five persons after they allegedly branded her witch in Kaniya village under Gulabpura police station in Bhilwara on Friday. The police have registered a murder case against the accused persons and have apprehended few suspected persons for interrogation.  According to sources, Premi Bai of Nahargarh area under Sambhugarh police station of Bhilwara had come to Kaniya village to visit her sister. Bai owned a piece of land in Kaniya village and one Ugma Gujjar had been pressurising her to sell off the land to him but she did not agree. On this, Ugma along with four others branded her witch and spread rumour that she entered into the body of one Kamla of same village and harassed her. On Thursday night, Ugma, Laxmi, Vishnu, Mahaveer and one other caught hold of her and thrashed her black and blue, sources said.

Sources said Bai was left on road where she succumbed to her injuries but her body was not picked up for several hours. It was only on Friday morning that locals informed police and a team reached the spot and took the body for post-mortem. Dy SP, Nihal Meena, who is investigating the case, said police have got vital information and the accused would be arrested soon. He said they have detained few persons on the basis of suspicion and their interrogation is on.  SP Bhilwara, Umesh Chandra Dutta, said the police have registered a case against five persons, including the main accused Ugma Gujjar and police teams are conducting raids at identified places in order to nab the accused persons.
