The residents were also afraid that the ‘witch’ might be a member of the dacoits gang and they sent her to conduct recce of the different places.

On learning that the people have detained the woman, the local police rushed to the spot so that the residents could not harm her. The police will now question the ‘witch’.

The interesting thing is that the woman while wearing the ‘witch’ make-up also tied ghoonghroos (bracelet around the ankle) to her feet, alerting the residents in advance wherever she went.
