According to Kavala, the protest will be held in conjunction with the Women Lawyers Association.

He, however, indicated that other details like the dates and routes for the demonstrations will be communicated in due course.

Last weekend angry members of the community in the district stoned the granny to death on witchcraft accusations.

The 70 year old woman was stoned to death on Saturday on the allegations that she killed her granddaughter through magic.

According to the eye witness, the child died the moment the woman had killed a hare.

Meanwhile, the law enforcers are keeping in custody 2 people in connection with the matter.
