Police are on the hunt for a man in India who celebrated the new year by slaughtering his mother and drinking her blood. As she was dying he hacked her to death, then took the remains and burned them as part of a Tantric sex magic ritual according to a report:
In a shocking act of Korba district, a youth who dabbled in Tantric practices killed his mother, and was seen lapping up the blood oozing out of her body even as she lay dying on New Year’s Eve.
A woman saw the gruesome act, but dared not intervene. It took her over three days to get over the shock and approach police. By the time the cops arrived, the accused, Dilip Yadav, had chopped his mother’s body into pieces, and burnt them. The news trickled out of the remote area only on Saturday.
Dilip is on the run and police are trying to nab him before he harms anyone else. Villagers have told police that Dilip practiced Tantra and often spoke of human sacrifice. He called his mother a witch and blamed her for the death of his father and brother, police say.
According to Korba additional SP Jaiprakash Badhai, the eyewitness — Samiran Yadav of Ramkachar village — approached Chaitma police station on Thursday night to report that she had seen an act of cannibalism. The cops were stunned.
Samiran told police that she had gone to visit a neighbor, 50-year-old Sumariya, on the morning of December 31. She was a regular visitor. As she neared the house, she heard strange noises and crept closer — only to see Dilip hacking his mother in the head, neck and chest with an axe.
Frozen in horror, Samiran says, she watched as Dilip sat down and started licking up the blood that was flowing out of his mother’s wounds as she took her last breaths.
“I was shivering in terror and pressed myself against a wall as this beastly act was going on,” she told cops.
She says she saw Dilip take the body inside the house, start chopping it into small pieces and throwing them into a fire. She ran back home but couldn’t gather courage to tell anyone about it.
She confided in her son-in-law two days after. After discussing it with the village head, the matter was reported to police on Thursday as an “incident of cannibalisation”.
On Friday, police went to Sumariya’s house with a forensic team and found ashes and charred bones. There were blood spatters all over the floor and walls. Police also recovered puja items and chunks of human flesh from the spot, indicating that Dilip had killed his mother as human sacrifice. Books on tantra practices were found in the house. But Dilip was gone.
