According to the police, the accused lured the boy called Yug with chocolates while he was playing with his elder brother Hurshal near his home. A complaint was registered with Bramhpuri police by Yug's father Ashok on August 22 after his elder son returned home alone.
"The accused found the boy apt for the occult practice as he was born with three swirls in his hair," said a police officer.
A case of Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Act and Section 302 (murder) of the IPC were registered against them.
