Men Are Suspected of Murdering a 6-Year-Old Boy as a “Human Sacrifice” for “Prosperity”

According to authorities, two men who were under the influence of drugs admitted to killing a 6-year-old boy and using him as a human sacrifice in order to achieve “prosperity.”

The alleged murder took place on Saturday night at a construction site close to South Delhi, India, after the boy and his family had celebrated Durga Puja, a Hindu festival honoring the goddess Durga.

According to a report from The Times of India, the boy, who has not been publicly identified, resided with his family at the construction camp where his parents worked as laborers.

Around 10:30 p.m., the 6-year-old started walking back to his accommodations after the festivities. when the two suspects, named as Vijay Kumar and Amar Kumar in the report, summoned him to their “cooking area.”

The two men allegedly started attacking the boy on his head and slitting his throat when he approached them, the newspaper claims.

The men have since been detained by the neighborhood police, and the case has been reported in the newspaper as a murder. The knife allegedly used in the alleged murder was also found, according to the police, as were the suspects’ outfits at the time.

Vijay Kumar allegedly told police that after taking “prasad,” a religious food offering in Hinduism, he became “disillusioned.” According to the Times, he claimed he killed the boy because he thought it was necessary to make a “human sacrifice” in order to prosper.

The two men had smoked “smack or ganja,” according to the police, and they wanted to “please” the gods.

“Additional investigation showed that Vijay had a “vision” about the murder. He claimed to have used drugs and asked some women for incense sticks while doing so. But they declined to assist him. After turning around, he perceived [a god] in his “vision.” The kid was then killed inside his shed after being picked up by the man. According to Chandan Choudhary, deputy commissioner of police, “The accused disclosed this in their disclosure statements.

The boy and his sister had only recently moved to South Delhi, and the boy’s father, who was also unidentified, expressed hope to the news source that they would soon start attending school.

“About four to five weeks ago, we arrived in Delhi. No one in our family ever got into a fight. He questioned, “Why did they kill my son?

Two kids were randomly attacked in February while playing outside in Annapolis, Maryland, and sustained injuries that required hospitalization. Edward Jackson, the chief of police in Annapolis, told reporters that a suspect had come out of the woods and started firing randomly, hitting the children in the process.

According to Pittsburgh police, a 1-year-old was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting there in May. Police told the local news station WTAE that the child had been riding in the car with a parent.
