BBC – India human sacrifice: Arrests over 10-year-old’s death
Police in the south Indian state of Karnataka have arrested three people in connection with the “human sacrifice” of a 10-year-old girl .
Police told BBC Hindi that the child was killed on the instructions of a “sorcerer” to “cure” a paralyzed man.
The alleged sorcerer told them it was the only way to undo “black magic” affecting their sibling, police said.
The murder was discovered after residents discovered the body of the girl inside a bag. They also found materials which police believe were used to conduct “black magic” rituals.
