Six year old girl gangraped, murdered, lungs taken out for black magic: Police
New Delhi : A six-year-old girl was found dead in a forest area in Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh); the victim was gangraped, killed and her lungs were then taken out of the corpse by the killers, police said on Monday.
The cops alleged that the lungs were apparently taken out to perform black magic by the murderer.
The victim girl had gone missing on Diwali night from the Ghatampur area. The killers -- Ankul Kuril (20) and Beeran (31) -- who were arrested on Sunday, had removed her lungs and delivered those to key conspirator Parshuram Kuril to perform black magic, ASP (Rural) Brajesh Srivastava said.
Parshuram was arrested on Monday and his wife was also detained due to the apprehension that she knew about the incident, but did not talk about it to anyone, the officer added.
After the interrogation, Parshuram confessed that he was performing black magic to become a father. He got married in 1999 but had not had a child so far, he said.
He persuaded his nephew, Ankul, and his friend Beeran, to kidnap the girl and remove her lungs, the ASP said.
The accused have been charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
