Murderer father admits to having killed another boy for ‘hidden treasure’ in Raisen, say police
Madhya Pradesh police on Monday recovered the body of a seven-year-old boy, who was allegedly sodomised and then sacrificed by the arrested treasure hunt lunatic, who had killed his own son earlier.
Labourer Chandrabhan Nauriya, 35, was arrested for killing his seven-year-old son Ranjeet to get the hidden treasure at the command of his tantrik stepfather Shivdayal.
The body of Ranjeet was found in an orchard on July 15.
During the investigation, the accused told the police that the two had sodomised and sacrificed seven-year-old Arun Kori too. At his revelation, the police recovered Kori’s body from Udaipura town of Raisen district. The latter was reported missing on November 12, 2014.
Chandrabhan’s relatives and neighbours strongly believe that he might have killed the boy to get the hidden treasure.
One of his relatives Manoj Pankhi said, “I am really shocked to know that Chandrabhan killed his own son and that he sodomised and killed another boy. When the boy who was sodomised was reported missing in November, neighbours had doubts about his role in the crime. We still feel that since Shivdayal practises tantric rituals they must have sacrificed this boy too for a hidden treasure.”
Raisen superintendent of police (SP) Deepak Verma said that during the course of interrogation the deceased’s father and step grandfather gave incoherent replies. Later, they confessed to having committed the crime.
Chandrabhan’s wife Suman Bai (32), mother Bhuri Bai (50) and son Raja (10) were in deep shock and failed to reveal much to the investigating team.
