Two people fell prey to black magic in Chhattisgarh after a 17-year-old boy allegedly killed his parents in connivance with his relatives in Jashpur district, offering them as sacrifice at the behest of a ‘tantric’ (shaman) to cure his mentally-ill elder brother, the police said on Tuesday.

The police arrested seven people from different parts of Jashpur, while one accused is on the run.

Raigarh superintendent of police Abhishek Meena said the bodies were recovered on August 1 in Nadigaon village, which comes under the Sariya police station limits.

“On August 1, we registered a case under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code and started the investigation. The bodies were identified as Sukru Yadav (40) and Manmati Yadav (45) of Maheshpur’s Bagbahar,” Meena said.

During the investigation, the police became suspicious about the family’s role in the incident, and subsequently, the minor told the police that he killed his parents along with seven others.

“The minor told us that a month back his elder brother fell mentally ill, so he was taken to a tantric named Mohan Yadav of Satguru Ashram. Yadav told the minor that his brother was ill because their parents had done some witchcraft, and if they kill the parents the brother would recover. Yadav said that their financial condition will also improve,” the police officer said.

Subsequently, the minor hatched the plan to kill his parents with the help of his brother-in-law Narsingh Yadav and cousins Raju Ram Yadav, Bhole Shankar Yadav, Shankar Yadav, Khageshwar Yadav, Ishwari Yadav and Dashrath Yadav.

They planned to throw the dead bodies in the Mahanadi river. The brother-in-law got a vehicle on the night of July 30 to Bhagwanpur and brought a rope, a towel and a plastic sink to carry out the killings.

“The accused called the parents into the vehicle on the pretext of their son not being well and took them to Surajgarh Mahanadi bridge where they were strangled to death,” the SP said.
