Khunti (Jharkhand): An elderly woman was burnt to death allegedly by another woman on the suspicion of being a witch, whose 'black magic' led to the death of the latter's newly born twins within a fortnight in Khunti district.

Anita Soy of Anantpur village delivered twin girls on November 15. One of them died on December 3 and the other one last night, Superintendent of Police Ashwini Kumar Sinha said.
