Following the examination of twenty witnesses and other pieces of evidence, the court rendered its decision.

17 persons were given life sentences by a Jajpur district court in Odisha on Thursday for the three-year-old burning death of a couple on suspicion of practicing magic.

Jajpur Road Additional District and Sessions Judge Hrusikesh Acharya fined each of the 17 individuals ₹10,000 after finding them guilty in the case.

In the late hours of July 7, 2020, a group of locals stormed into the home of Shaila Balmuj and Sambari Balmuj in Nimapali hamlet in the Kalinga Nagar district, accusing them of sorcery.
