Badwani (MP), Mar 4 (UNI) A tribal woman, allegedly branded a witch, was tortured by a man at Balkhad village in this district's Sendhwa tehsil, police said today.

Dhawli Bai (35), who came along with her husband and some other tribal representatives, today lodged a complaint before Sendhwa Sub-divisional Officer (SDO) Amit Singh.
